Here’s my Lil’ Santa. He hangs out here on my desk all year long. He was a silent auction reject. No one wanted him, even for a quarter. But during clean up, I couldn’t let him go. His shoe was broken off and he was rather faded out. But I sat him here cause in him there is something that makes me smile. A couple of weeks ago I got out an old bottle of whiteout and a red marker. I whited out his beard and gown and with the red marker gave his blue coat red trim. I was afraid it wouldn’t go well but it turned out ok. He still makes me smile. And I believe getting spiffed up made him happy. As an added bonus, it has made my coworker happy when he realized his lil’ Santa has a new home with new friends.
