Joy and Santa Claus Hat
Santa X Factor

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.
