One Highlight from a Very Long Day

Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus . . .

. . . and he wraps his gifts. Or the elves do. Or his wife (who we all know is the one really running the show since no man in the history of men has ever been able to keep an accurate list, successfully lead a group of short people, AND take a long road trip without getting lost). Point is, SOMEBODY wraps the gifts that Santa leaves for Christmas morning.

Exhibit A: The Internet says so. 345 people voted in the handy dandy little poll, with a commanding 74.75% of them indicating that Santa does indeed wrap. Sure, he may skip the really big and awkward stuff like bikes, but sometimes he goes so far as to wrap every item in a stocking. Like CarolineFB said, they make this stuff called "wrapping paper" and it's this fancy paper that you use to WRAP PRESENTS. *Ahem*

BTW, the "No" votes made a serious run at the end, jumping from as low as 22% this morning to 25.25% just before the poll closed. I'm thinking it's no coincidence that the people who were late to the party are the same ones who are all, "I'm too lazy to wrap." ;-)

I personally survived 30 years without having ANY idea that there were people who disagreed with me that Santa OF COURSE wraps (remember, it's a fact because the Internet said so). I was totally shocked to learn Mr. Husband was not aware of this fact (although, in retrospect I realized that I tend to wrap a lot of stuff for his Mom because it's not her favorite thing to do). I was even more shocked to learn just how strongly people seem to feel about this whole thing. If you don't believe me, read through the comments. Strong opinions, yo. Too bad 25% of you are wrong. *ducks to avoid all the gift bags they are throwing at me*

So, Santa will be wrapping gifts around here. He has already acquired very special paper for the occasion and is eagerly looking forward to having some really funky looking packages. You see, I LOVE to wrap. A lot. Each package is meticulously wrapped in perfect paper and topped with a perfect bow. Santa is a slob and won't be fussing with all that stuff. It'll be fun to change things up a bit.

Oh, and for the couple of people that tried to use movies as evidence that Santa does not wrap, I'm calling your bluff.

Exhibit B: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer has wrapped gifts flying all over the place (at 1:50 of that clip).

Exhibit C: Santa Claus is Coming to Town and at 3:40, Santa himself is holding a purdy gift with silver paper and a big silver bow.

Exhibit D: How the Grinch Stole Christmas watch the Grinch steal the tree then at 1:10, you'll see that those gifts are most definitely wrapped.

There is simply no arguing with facts found on the Internet. After all, Al Gore would never invent something full of lies.

She Thought About It, but Didn't Eat a Single Bite
