What Santa really needs is a nemesis. I pick me!

On further reflection I decline the honor as it's a bad idea. Sure, it would make Christmas more exciting at first, but around year 6 I'd be written right out of the holiday and it would limp along sucking for years to come.

This still doesn't explain why Santa gives the poor kids the shit end of the stick.

Because Santa's mind-reading powers are blocked by the all lead paint in tenement buildings.

These short blurbs on the History mobile site are nothing compared to what they have been showing on T.V.!

They left out the ritual comsumption of lutefisk on Christmas Eve by Scandinavians. Dreadful stuff! they left out that not only do little Mexican children get to bash a pinata (loads of fun!), they are visited by the Three Wise Men, who ride camels. Lots of children will swear they heard camel bells in the middle of the night. The Three Wise Men only leave one modest gift per kid, having blown the budget on camel feed, frankincense, myrh and gold.
