Diary of a Mall Santa by Stewart Scott....review
On the thirteenth day of Christmas, I am honored to share my review of Diary of a Mall Santa! Ho! Ho! Ho! Have you visited with Santa this year?
Book Description: Santa entertains us with his favorite "tales from the front." Each vignette recounts a real life moment with children or adults during the days leading up to Christmas. Some stories are tender and heartwarming; some are funny; some are a bit caustic and irreverent, others are heartbreaking -- yet all are true.
These stories are for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other adults. However, by sharing them with children, you risk tarnishing the luster of the Santa experience.
And remember, Santa IS watching you.
From my Perspective: At 130 pages, this was a fast reading book and a pleasure to read. It definitely reminds us what the real reason for the season is and how one particular Santa perceives and receives his guests those precious and ever busy days prior to Christmas. It was definitely a reminder of many philosophies, like don't force your babies to sit on Santa's lap if they are frightened and not rewarding bad behavior with treats in exchange for behaving well, or smiling for the camera. I have a whole new perspective now about Santa and his duties and how I may be perceived as a Grandmother taking my little darlings to see him. It's a two way street there and my worries about Christmas and the holiday frenzy would be best buried for a visit to the man in red!....A Charming read.
