C is for Santa smoking
Then this week I discover that a woman has hacked out a few lines of "'Twas the night before Christmas", declared Santa to be a non-smoker, Photoshopped out his pipe, and published. Why? because Santa, who according to the poem is in fact an elf, might be influencing small minds to rush out and take up smoking. Reminds me of the people I once babysat for who gave up Santa because when you rearranged the letters it spelled Satan.
Let's let the old elf have his pipe. And if your kid wants to take up smoking, I suggest you look to other much more insidious influences.
C is for cookie, and that's good enough for me.
