The Creepiness of Santa
I know Iâ€™m a little left out Jewish girl but I have never understood the whole Santa picture thing, never. I mean there is this chubby middle aged guy in a red suit and white beard who you put your child on his lap to take a picture. How does this not scream creepy to anyone??
With how paranoid parents are these days about pedophiles why would anyone want to put their child on a strangerâ€™s lap for a picture? If the guy didnâ€™t have on a Santa costume would you do it?
Itâ€™s things like these that Iâ€™m glad I was raised Jewish because there isnâ€™t one picture of me with Santa where Iâ€™m crying my eyes out or simply horrified. I donâ€™t have to look back and wonder who or what was lurking under that red suit.
Now that Iâ€™ve thrown this out there, what else can I sabotage about the holidays?
