naughty or nice

Dear Santa,

It has come to my attention that you know when I am sleeping. You know when I am awake. You know when I have been bad or good. I do not know how you obtained this information, but your methods may well be illegal, Santa. For the purpose of discussion here, though, I am ignoring that for now.

So, as I contemplate the likelihood of receiving coal in my stocking this year, I ask you, Santa: define good.

Define bad.

Define naughty and nice.

Ah… yes. If we are maintaining the conventional standards, I assume that means coal.

Well, then, let me embrace the coal.

Yes, I embrace the coal, the gritty black honesty of it.

I embrace coal, and earth, and wishes and passion. Really, this is all I need.

And then I ask you, Santa, what really matters in this season of hope and love?

With love,
L.D.

    When you receive your definitions from Santa, do you think you could post them for the rest of us? I also have problems with the line between naughty and nice.

    As for what matters, I think you’ve hit the nail beautifully on the head.

    Merry Christmas…
