    Chris..it took me most of 60 years to realize what a metaphor was & the subjective objective thing it really would have helped to realize it earlier..I didn't mean you writing..is she writing..she sounds like she is VERY smart and it would be nice to read her work maybe just in the blog of yours?

    Hmmm I would like you to consider this Chris..in regard to Santa and to the Easter Bunnie since you are a wonderful writer why not use this as an opportunity to explore metaphor, similie and personification with you girl. She's obviously very smart. Explain folks need simple stories to hold large messages and she can make up her own Holy Day persona's?

    Smart girl you have! And now I understand. I had a good friend who also was anti-Santa. She, too, grew up in a home that had no Santa. She felt the way you did, too. Good blog. :)

    Chris I found out aged 7 that there is no Santa Claus when I woke up and there were no presents at all for me or my brother and sister, but my parents were fast asleep downstairs and drunk as drunk could be! I made sure that my kids never had that kind of life...

    NOW............If there is no Santa Claus, as there are no fairies, gnomes, werewolves, Candymen, honest politicians, Casper, Easter Rabbits, Bigfoot, arms of mass destruction, the seven dwarfs, Vanpires, flying witches, monsters in the closet, imaginary friends, etc. ..WHO is responsible for my missing socks?

After reading this blog, you will never again have to claim that you don't know how to write haiku :P
