Good afternoon John,

I was just listening to your interview with the lady from the Santa recruitment firm, I found it quite amusing when she said the standard greeting for Santa is "good morning or good afternoon young man or young lady"…I dare say that if Santa said that to me, I would have to ask Rudolph if Santa had been taking his pills.

On a more serious note though, I agree with you that Santa's "Ho ho ho" is not the most important childhood tradition despite was a supposed expert may think, however I still find the annual photo with Santa to be an important tradition to me…I accidentally missed out last year but I have no intention of doing so this year. Apart from anything else, it's a good way to keep track of the years in a photographic form.

Is Santaphilia legal?

#3 Comment By Samuel On November 15, 2007 @ 8:25 pm

To the best of my knowledge, no, it is not legal.

I have not applied for a Santa job (I’m not really large enough anyway) but it is my understanding that candidates for such positions have to undergo a police character check.

Deck the halls with empty bottles
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Tis the season to get sozzled
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Come let us get totally crissed
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Sleep through Christmas
You won’t miss it
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Dashing to the pub
Hoping it’s not shut
If that pub is closed
We can not drink up
We’ll have to face the kids
Screaming out the year
I’ll be crying out
Where’s me bloody beer?
Pubs are shut, pubs are shut
I’m a sober mess
If I can’t get plastered
Me Christmas ain’t the best.

Merry Christmas one and all and may 2008 be real great mate.
