As I child I was led to believe that he returned to the North Pole, to rest, eat, and began to once more plan for the next Christmas. Now I’m an adult and I dont believe that one bit. Why you might ask, because if I was Santa I wouldn’t just go right back to work. He has magical powers. He can be anywhere in the world in the blink of an eye, thanks to his flying reindeer, he can shrink and slip down chimneys, and his bag of goodies has an endless bottom. So with all that said, why not use some of those work related benefits and enjoy himself. I would!! Right now I can picture him on the beach in Cozumel, sipping blue frosty drinks. He would be reading the latest edition of People, not making notes of who is already being bad or good. After a few days of sun then I can see him hopping on to the sleigh and heading to Sweden, to ski a bit and of course partake of the famous licorce. The reindeer could frolick in the snow while Santa sits by the fire surround by snow bunnies. Maybe he would go to Thailand for a special massage, or to Texas for Tex Mex cuisine or he might even come here to Grand Junction to listen to some live music, like Jack and Jill.
So next time you think about Santa, instead of assuming he is working at the North Pole, picture him out having a good time, using his magic to have some fun and if you do see him, tell him I said Hi.
