Santa Clause is having a cup of coffee. But there’s more going on here. I can tell because of the lighting. Santa is having a treat after he has done his job. All the way from the North Pole, a long ride. It’s a man. I can tell by his thumb. He must be saying, ‘Oh what a relief.’ It could be hot chocolate, coffee or hot buttered rum. My favorites would be the chocolate or hot butter rum.
I had 7 brothers and 5 sisters so Christmas presents were sparse. He has company. He’s not alone. They are all drinking coffee.
I really like that furry cuff on his sleeve. Is it made from goat’s fur?
Next she mixed up the chocolate and went to the bathroom. They’re going to toast to something, to Christmas. They are definitely getting ready to toast something.
There is Christmas music in the background. Happy, Merry Christmas music. I hear the crackling of the fire. I smell coffee. I smell the fire depending upon if they are burning coal or wood. I smell smoking. He’s sitting with lots of people at the North Pole, in front of the fireplace.
He’s happy holding the mug toasting and saying ‘Ho, Ho, Ho!’ He looks happy. He’s feeling no pain. He’s saying, ‘Merry Christmas. Ho Ho Ho. Happy New Year to all!
