C'mon admit it. There's a dark side to Christmas that no one likes to talk about. It's the proverbial 300 pound elf in the living room. We all know it's there. We don't acknowledge it for fear of reprisal.
Maybe it's a collective case of pogonophobia ( a fear of beards) combined with cathisophobia (a fear of sitting) and ereuthophobia (a fear of red). Or maybe it's a generalized androphobia (a fear of men). But I doubt it.
The kids know the score. Why don't the supposed adults get it?
Dude, Santa's a stalker.
