Santa Claus's checkered past

Monday 10/5/20

C: Has trick-or-treating been cancelled there?


K: It has not been cancelled yet but we'll see how cases are looking by the end of Oct.


K: I'm hoping we can just get a group of houses from our friend group to participate and each house will leave a bag of little goodies outside for the kids to pick up


C: That's a good idea. Has an Easter/Christmas element too


K: You're right it does


K: Lilah was worried over the summer that Christmas would be cancelled this year, and I was like NO ONE can cancel Christmas!


K: Santa prevails


C: Well, there was that time in The Year Without a Santa Clause when he bailed on Christmas and went back to bed


C: And that other time ten years prior when he cancelled Christmas but Rudolph saved things


K: Haha I guess I spoke too soon


C: And in 'Twas the Night Before Christmas--my favorite Rankin/Bass special--he tries to snub a whole town because he was offended by a letter. Santa has this Old Testament, dickish vibe to him sometimes. But it'll probably be fine.
