I thought the whole idea was insane, when I read some news story about parents being up in arms, because some talking head spilled the beans on the
whole thing. Plus, the idea of a doll watching the kids? Its one thing if THEY decide the toy is real, and looking out for them, but quite another
for someone else to. Can totally understand how you must feel, having your son freaked out that way. Makes me wonder how many other families have a
similar issue, and won't admit to it.
No, would not be surprised if there was more to the dolls, either.
Well, my house, we don't even do the "Santa" thing at all. The kids have always known who fills the stockings, and buys the gifts. I was never
cool with some stranger sneaking in at night, leaving the best presents, anyway. The idea of Santa (which, yes, i did believe as a kid) is really
pretty creepy, if you look at it. Sit on his lap to get goodies, he watches you all the time, and sneaks into your home at night? Um....ewwww????
Then there is the issue of the two guys supposedly the historical basis for the figure. Looked them up, some time back, in an old encyclopedia we had
(can't recall who they were off hand), and neither fellow seemed to have a known date of death. That alone is too creepy!
Santa....Satan.....rearrange the letters.....
Think I will pass on those elves!
