More importantly, what would your kids ask?
The King of the Handsome Boys, my boy Harrison, is also King of the Questions. Normally it is Dad [me] who fields the barrage of questions. Over the last few days, I have enjoyed blissful respite from Harrison’s diligent volley of “who, what, why, when, where, and how?”
[Two of Harrison's more famous questions: "How did God make the dark?" "Are monkeys faster than cats?"]
Why has Harrison stopped asking questions of his wise-old dad? Santa and Mrs. Claus have vacationed with us here in Destin for the last few days.
So now you know: Given a weekend, here are only a fraction of the questions your kids would ask Santa and Mrs. Claus . . .
“What do reindeer eat?” “How often do you [Mrs. Claus] get to go to the North Pole?” “While Mrs. Claus and the elves are doing all the work, do you just sit and watch TV?” “How old are you?” “What do you use to write the list [Naughty and Nice]–pencil, pen, or crayon?” Indicating his own height with his hand: “Is the list this long?” “If you’re barely good, are you at the bottom of the list?” “How many homes do you see on Christmas?” “How do you visit homes in other countries when they celebrate Christmas at other times?” “How long does your trip take?” “Do you sleep all day long the day after Christmas?” “Do you eat all the cookies?” “Santa–how long do you stay at the beach?” “Do you go outside and have snowball fights?” “Could you freeze to death in the North Pole? The Elves?” “Do you [Mrs. Claus] know all of the Elves?”
If your own kids have some questions for Santa, keep following the blog. We’ll have Santa/Christmas portrait dates posted soon. Save up your questions, and we’ll look forward to hearing them soon.
