Back in the 1960's, a time when I was still wanting to 'Believe', but some around me thought it was time I faced reality, the Beach Boys came out with a song about Santa's Beard (UTube link). The lyrics went like this:
I wanna meet Santa Claus, the real Santa
I took my brother to the department store
He wanted to show Santa his Christmas list
He stood in line and he shook like a leaf
He's only five and half goin' on six
He said, "Is that really Santa Clause, really really Santa Claus?
I picked him up and put him on Santa's lap
And then he pulled the pillow out of his shirt
He yanked the beard right off of his chin
And in his eyes I could see he was hurt.
A little more than a decade later, I faced the same department store Santa scenario.
We left there with Santa's Beard unscathed and a five year old, going on six, 'Believing'!
