There is a man dressed like Santa, about to have a cup of cocoa, coffee, or brew. He’s definitely a man because he’s got to stay up so late. He’s raising his cup up in a toast. It’s Christmas Eve and he’s relaxing before he has to go to work. He hooks his reindeer up and takes off. (Oh God, I don’t know! Where’s your imagination? Outside!) Then he goes to the other place where he can have fun. There are others around but they are all sleeping. There are snacks-sandwiches and coffee. (A bunch of fingers! You’re not going to be eating fingers!) It’s in a dining hall. He’s in someone’s home, where there are kids expecting Santa Clause to put gifts around. Pretty soon they heard a noise and when they looked they saw Santa clause with his reindeer. Everyone was up because of the noise and racket and they wondered about it. They had never seen him before.
Santa ought to make a Night Before Christmas song, don’t ya think? It would be catchy!
