General drivel. (priceless 2)

A letter, published in todays Daily Telegraph brought a big smile to my face. The young lad has obviously grasped the seriousness of the financial crisis, but has not been told the whole truth about Christmas!

It went as follows...Sir. My eight year old son said to me today, "Dad, don't worry about the expensive presents I want this year, I've put them on my list to Santa, as he doesn't have to pay for them."

What course of action should I take for such a generous offer?

That's such a good little boy...I think if his father tells him that Santa is broke, he might believe and not want Santa to bring him anything.

How are you, JohnG? Say hello to your dad.

It's only a couple of years ago that my grandaon James said gleefully:
'I love Christmas - you can have anything you want and NOBODY PAYS!'
Thence followed a lecture on how Santa doesn't like greedy little boys.
