Is it just me or is there really something that's just wrong about filling Santa's pants with candy and nuts (!) and calling that an appropriate gift for Christmas? And don't get me started about the push towards the biggest shopping event of the year. They swept that Halloween candy off the shelf on November 1 and replaced it with rows of wrapping paper, tinsel, toys, and chocolates. If you don't believe me, head to your neighborhood Safeway where Santa Pant are stuffed with peanuts and pistachios.
