"Santa's gonna bring you something nice and put it in your stocking!"
"No, he won't," the little guy said.
"Don't say that. Of course he will!!!!" she insisted.
The little guy walked off, and the waitress related this story to me.
"He says he won't get anything in his stocking!" she said to me, slightly horrified.
"Well, no, he won't," I said as her face fell even more,"because we're Jewish."
With that, we laughed together.
Yep, no stockings waiting to be stuffed are hanging in our home, thanks. We won't be expecting Santa to be stuffing himself down our chimney anytime soon, either. And from what I gather, Santa won't be too thrilled to find this house if he does come...
Sorry, Santa, we won't be accepting Jesus as our savior. Not even for more presents. Back up the chimney with you, now.
