Spill The Beans

"I'll take this moment to thank my parents William & Rose Hall for never ever allowing us to fall for the Santa Claus lie. My daddy told me quite early in life that no one, especially a white man's myth, should get credit for another man's hard work and effort. My momma told me Santa was nowhere to be found in her bible and that Christmas was the celebration of the birth of Christ. They were my warriors of truth. So when I was a very young boy I knew Santa was 6'2, black, and Mrs. Claus was 5'10 and black. I never ever sat in any stranger's lap and was asked what I wanted for Christmas I simply asked my Mom and Dad who celebrated giving gifts and they gave it to me if they had it; which it seems they always did. Thanks, Mom and Dad, and Happy Days of Good Fortune and Great Health to all. Santa and his reindeers and elves aren't in the story of truth but only creating a mythology that can undermine the reality of honest work and effort by the actual providers."
