Wow!!! I don't know what to say. I literally don't know what to say. Seems like I have come down with a case of writer's block. Don't know whether it is the excitement of the time of year, or the mass of paperwork at the job that I just cannot seem to put a dent in, but the words just don't want to come, so when I stumbled onto the following list of observations about Santa and the life lessons we can learn from him, I really thought it was pretty cool and thought I would share it with you. And, although I found it while looking for a Christmas joke for my group, I thought most of these things were actually quite appropriate.
1. Encourage people to believe in you.
2. Always remember who's naughty and who's nice.
3. Don't pout.
4. It's as much fun to give as it is to receive.
5. Some days it's okay to feel a little chubby.
6. Make your presents known.
7. Always ask for a little bit more than what you really want.
8. Bright red can make anyone look good.
9. Wear a wide belt and no-one will notice how many pounds you've gained.
10. If you only show up once a year, everyone will think you're very important.
11. Whenever you're at a loss for words, say "HO, HO, HO!"
Don't ya just love the following....
