Santa Picture

Today we saw Santa.  The token Santa picture you feel like you need to do.  It's always a gamble as to how the kids will do.  Will it be a crying, get me out of here moment or a happy, nice to see you moment.  I was pleasantly surprised toady that Isla didn't cry.  Last year she wanted nothing to do with him.  Which I understand since he is a strange man with a big white beard and you are sitting on his knee.  

It's too bad Santa has become so commercialized.  I wish we could focus more on his origin .....

270-280AD Birth of St. Nicholas, who was to become the most accurate and actual ancestor of Santa Claus. He was ordained Bishop whilst still a very young man, and spent his life helping the poor and underprivileged. He loved children and often went out at night disguised in a hooded cloak, to leave necessary gifts of money, clothing or food at the windows of unfortunate families. The Christmas Archives.

Here we come Santa!
