A Weekend With Friends And Santa
This weekend hubby and I went out East with about 12 of our friends for an overnight stay at Hotel Indigo. My friend’s family owns the hotel and they had us all out there to have a look. The kids got to decorate cookies with icing and sprinkles and have breakfast with Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
I wasn’t too thrilled about Santa coming to town because I always go to Macy’s on 34th street for our annual picture. Whenever I see Santa hanging out at our local mall I make an effort to AVOID AVOID AVOID! Santa is so… available these days that it almost takes away some of the magic. Everywhere you turn – there he is!
When I was young, I used to look forward to that trip to Macy’s because THAT’S WHERE SANTA WAS. Nowadays – he’s even in the grocery store. I mean – come on now!
A week ago Bill and I went to the Mall to get Natalie some pants and Santa was ALREADY SET UP – this was before Thanksgiving. I almost lost it right there in front of him. I would never have taken the kids had I known WHO we would run into.
And now when we go to Santa Land at Macy’s next week, I’m going to tell the kids… Tell Santa what you want (again). UGH!!!
What do you think about the increase of Santa sightings? Is it part of the Christmas spirit? Or is it overkill? You obviously know my opinion. LOL
