Potent Quotable 12-11-2011

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

HAVEN GILLESPIE, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"

Colton and Santa

Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy;
who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows;
who shares his joys with those who are sad;
whose hand is never closed against the needy;
whose arm is ever outstretched to aid the week;
whose sympathy is quick and genuine in time of trouble;
who recognizes a comrade and brother in every man he meets upon life’s common road;
who lives his life throughout the entire year in the Christmas spirit.

  1. Wonderful photo of Colton with Santa. And what a wonderful Santa!! He really looks like the images on Christmas cards and in books. One of the biggest puzzlements in my life is, in this age of technology, why the fake beards look so FAKE? Obviously, a real one is the ideal but not every person acting as Santa can do that.
    Anyway, I’ll get off that soapbox and say again — wonderful photo.
