I don’ t know if everyone does this in every region of the country, but in my neck of the woods, they bring Santa to your door twice during the Christmas season. Via fire engine.
That’s what I call bad ass.
Santa always cruises by, sirens blazing (much to the chagrin of local dogs and sleeping babies), on the Sunday before Christmas and then again on Christmas Eve. True, I have witnessed a Santa who is in a post libation state, but hey – it’s cold outside; a man’s got to do something to keep warm. They usually hand out candy of some kind, which is a nice treat for the kids – Santa basically knocks on your door and hands you a lollipop.
