A boy’s defense about behavior at Christmas

Sunday night at our Christmas event at Palmetto Historical Park, a young lad of about 7 years old ran up to me looking for Santa. I told him when Santa was due to arrive and where he could go to see him.

I then teased the lad, stating that Santa had told me he was a little “iffy” and that he would need to be very good between now and Christmas.

With great gesture he responded that he was a good boy and that he loved to help everyone -- “everyone here in this whole park.”

I told him that I saw him having a political future. He turned with a look on his face that was priceless and said, “I haven’t been naughty.”
