Braved is right. Me, too.

That's a very interesting Santa! I can't decide if he's funny or scary or just plain worn out! :)

have a good time...whatever...

Dear Relyn,
It was a total zoo.

Dear Susan,
I took this picture in August and cracked up because of the sign. Santa For Sale.

Dear melissashook,
I wish I thought of it. A self-portrait at dunkin' donuts would have been hilarious. This thing was huge - over two feet tall with the beard - it would have swallowed up an entire wall. A true personification of the commercialism of Christmas.

That's find. I hope you bought him..LOL. You were very brave to confront the mall yesterday.

oh, damn, I had this great scenario in my mind of a wearable mask...but, obviously no... Well, you have to find something else equally fantastic but perhaps with feathers to wear at Dunkin Donuts...
I'm glad you didn't buy him......

Dear Yoli,
I did not buy him; not really my style. It was too impractical as a gag because of its large size. Though it might have been a good reminder that Santa should not be for sale. The mall was a necessity so that I could get some snow gear for our trip to Yosemite. It was mobbed everywhere and the lines were ridiculously long.

Dear melissashook,
Yes, it was a great scenario. Why don't we both pretend that I did this and we can have a good laugh about it now and then.
