I cannot be the only who…doesn’t really have much to do on Christmas Eve, thankfully my mom still puts together the big family shindig, so we usually spend the morning relaxing. With all this unusual spare time, I decided to conduct an interview with the fantastic Mr. Sonny Boy, to learn his five year-old thoughts on what is happening with Santa now that he has officially started his magical trip around the world.
Me: What do you think the reindeer do on the roof tops while waiting for Santa to shimmy his way back up the chimney after stuffing the stockings?
Sonny Boy: The reindeer definitely play checkers, the elves made them the checkerboard in Christmas colors, and Rudolf wins almost every game because he has a sparkly red nose and has the most power. (How the power to fly helps Rudolf win at checkers is unclear.)
Me: What does Santa do if he has to use the bathroom while flying around delivering gifts on Christmas Eve?
Sonny Boy: He wouldn’t use a stranger’s bathroom, so…he uses the plants outside. (Well, this is just good safety, you can never be to careful.)
Me: Do you think Santa’s big black boots get stinky while he is out all night making sure all the children in the world have gifts on Christmas morning?
Sonny Boy: Oh yes! I bet his boots stink like old rotten bananas. (Interesting...stinky banana boots.)
Me: Does Santa eat all of the cookies the children leave for him on Christmas Eve before they go to bed?
Sonny Boy: No, sometimes he is too full to eat more cookies, so he puts the extra ones a lunch box...to read the rest of this compelling Christmas interview, please visit my blog: I Cannot be the Only One...
