He may be a jolly old elf, but even Santa has his off days. So you might excuse him for looking a little bleary-eyed, a little miserable, perhaps even a little like something out of a Wes Craven movie. You’d be a little peeved too if your job entailed having a thousand screaming children with their stinky diapers and testy temperaments sit in your lap every single day, eight hours a day, knowing full well that you won’t be bringing them that life-size Batmobile they’re expecting on Christmas Day.
So in honor of this fourth day of Holidaze 2012, December 21, here’s Santa as you rarely see him: a little groggy, somewhat worse for wear and tear … OK, maybe a little frightening, but I’m guessing that every one of them is wishing to God it was December 25. Don’t worry, Santa. Only four more days!
