Joy and Santa Claus Hat


Santa X Factor
Originally uploaded by sarniebill1

One fun thing I have found at this time of year is to wear my Santa hat when I am out and about.

It gives a spark of joy to folks all over town.

One man held out his arms and said "Santa, you are here!" I replied "I am Mrs. Santa, my husband is very busy."

Two young clerks in a bicycle shop, where I was on a secret gift buying mission, loved my Santa hat, and one of them offered to trade me hats. His was a plain watch cap, and I told him no way, mine is prettier. His co-worker said "See that spot on his hat, that is dog drool."

So no way in the world did I do a hat trade.

I realized that the silly Santa Claus hat I wore cheered people up, and that cheered me up just as well.

Hey that sounds like fun. Some folks need a lift. I don't even like to shop in crowded stores where people are pushing and shoving. Maybe I need to wear my Santa hat.

I wear a huge red and green badge about 8 inches across that droops right out from my coat..and says..
"It's a jingle out there!" never fails to get a giggle or a chat started....

Hi All and thanks for your comments.
BumbleVee's badge that says "It's a jingle out there" is priceless, I love it, and you are spreading joy as you run errands.
I have a red sweatshirt with a cute reindeer & Christmas lights embroidered on its antlers on the sweatshirt and it says "Lighten up" which people also like.

I can tell you the truth - wearing a Santa hat makes people happy - my grandson wore one all season and so many people commented and smiled. I think that is needed at Christmas time and all year long!
