Santa Claus is a jolly fellow! Imagine all that driving and still being able to say, “Ho! Ho! Ho!” My friend, Rick, is a paramedic here in Miami. A few years ago he answered a call about a man who had a head injury he got when some teenagers were throwing eggs at cars. It seems that the egg had come through the open window of the man”s car as he was driving at about 45 mph. He had a large swelling on his forehead. In the official report, Rick described the incident as an “egg-noggin”.
Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish. Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself.
