Possible Christmas Sweater Design? Might Work!
 
 It’s the advent blue note time of year; we get amped up and then somewhere in the middle of the crazy advent shopping and preparation frenzy, we get the blues.   Today's story hits this note well; it is a dark impression of American youth today and their relations to Santa.
 Caveat Lector: not for kids. 

 Quote from the Story:


"’Cause I don’t want it to be like last year."
Tonya sighed heavily and rubbed at her temples. She’d been hearing this same tirade from her son for an entire year now. "Henry, there was nothing wrong with what you got from Santa last year."
"I asked for an X Box, and he gave me a Playstation. It’s not the same."
