We can tell ourselves it’s all worth it, because even though they will be crestfallen in the future, right now in the present we can see a five year old scream with delight because Santa Claus loves her and knows exactly what she wanted.
“Santa Claus is an avatar of the state cult of the United States.”
“Krampus is the kind of mythological figure I can get behind.”
“No more CHRISTMAS SHIT for the rest of the night.”
Who’s to say Snowdrip or Evergreen or whatever generically named Elf won’t end up feeling the Bern and realize that their situation sucks.
“Even if his first name is Santa, he’s no saint to me.”
“Around Christmas time I would have to set up The Singing Santa next to the lube.”
