Santa Sightings

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out
Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
J. Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie, 1934


The day before Santa begins his big ride around the globe, I caught a glimpse of him meeting children at his mall 'getaway'.


Then I spotted him in front of a government building. Thankfully, political correctness hasn't dimmed the fun here. This traditional Santa brings cheer to all who pass.


And then a non-traditional Santa appeared briefly beneath our Christmas tree. This furry rendition evoked many 'Ho-ho-hos' as we attempted to outfit her. Getting the beard in place was mission impossible.

Is this Scratchy, the cat I met in Luxor?
