Santa Claus is concerned for the children of the 21st century. He, Mrs. Claus, the elves, reindeer, as well as all of the residents of the North Pole have decided to kick their horrible habit of smoking!
In the classic tale, Twas The Night Before Christmas, Santa is depicted sporting a pipe stuffed with tobacco. Well, not anymore! The holly, jolly man will no longer be seen with a pipe protruding from his abundantly long and puffy white beard.
So, all you kids out there, if you don’t want to end up on the “Naughty List” you better throw out those cigarettes you managed to steal from Grandpa. Let’s make Santa proud!
On a personal note, Santa, thank you for visiting me every year even though I’m Jewish. You must be impressed by my staying away from those nasty cancer sticks!
Happy September everyone! And remember, you only have 96 days to get your act together!
