May I speak to Santa please?
First of all, 1 (800) Santa-Clause? Who the hell called Santa? You wrote him a letter in crayon, sealed it with love and mailed it to “1 North Pole Road, The North Pole,” like every other normal kid.
Second, wouldn’t it be more fun to answer the calls and actually talk to the kids? Like the one who asked for “love and luck,” you could be like:
Santa: “And what do you want for Christmas, little girl?”
Destiny: “I’ve been a good girl. I want for this year love and luck in my life.”
Santa: “Sorry Destiny, but I can’t give you those things. You need to earn them.”
Santa: “You need to try harder to make the people around you love you. And everyone knows that there’s no such thing as luck. You make your own luck through dedication and perseverance.”
Santa: “That’s not going to help, Destiny.”

"They didn't go anywhere expensive and spend a lot of money on Jesus, but they showed him a really good time."
Leising, who says that Jesus is “her best friend,” commented, “You know, Jesus doesn’t get out much. I’m glad he got to have this adventure. Since his crucifixion, he’s been pretty down. He really needed this.” She added, “Oh my, I’m feeling crazier than usual today!”
