honest with Santa

Shopping mall Santas may not have an easy job after all. According to a survey, 90 percent of all seasonal Santas say that at least one kid pulls their beard every single day - just to see if it is real. The same survey showed that these Santas get sneezed on up to 10 times a day. A third of Santas report being wet on by a child. Nearly three quarters of the kids who sit on Santa's lap say they were 'good' this year, according to the Santas. (Source: Reuters)

So here's what I found interesting. 1 out of every 4 kids was willing to admit to Santa that they haven't always been good. That is some amazing honesty. Either these are some humble kids with great integrity, or they've been really bad and they figure confession might bring forgiveness. Either way, there's a lesson for us to learn when it comes to getting real and honest before God.

And...oh yeah. Maybe Santa will bring me a shiney toy like this one next Christmas!
