Dear Santa: All I Want for Christmas is a Restraining Order

Ho, Ho, Ho.

There are moments that stay with you forever in your list of Moments That Make a Parent Proud. Now, the Vampire was anything but shy as a wee beastie, and was more prone to terrifying Santa by latching limpetlike to his leg and refusing to be detached (cough up the goods *now*, Santa, if you ever want to see Mrs. Claus again...). But I have memories of my sister's early years, and having watched my son's early performances in public when a smoke detector or fire alarm went off, I have some sympathy for my mom's experiences of Christmas Past.

The Scared of Santa website provides amusement for those of us who don't have to worry about Santa Incidents any more. And for those of us who still do - well, perhaps you can find some reassurance that you aren't the ONLY parent who has pulled their jacket up over their head and scuttled out of that department store as fast as your kid's stubby little legs could go...

Have you seen Bad Santa? Billy Bob Thornton is a Santa to really be scared of...

Never saw it (yet), though I've heard it's good. Unfortunately, the sources were unreliable and the Pirate has no desire to see it, so it's loitering near the bottom of the Film Priority List.

Someday...
