As I loaded her into her car seat and into the car I was careful to make sure her dress did not wrinkle. When I arrived at the mall I felt more anticipation than a child does on Christmas morning. I cautiously lifted her out of the car seat, put her jacket on and equipped the camera. As I raced into the mall and marched towards the line of children I saw my daughter's face turn from happiness to fear but I did not know why. After all, it was only a white bunny, she could not be scared of that. Could she? I was certain that she would only be scared for a minute but my theory was quickly proven wrong.
After waiting in the line for what seemed like an eternity, listening to the interminable requests of the other children, it was finally our turn. As I moved toward the bunny my daughter pushed herself up against my body. I had to pry her away to set her down on the his lap....

- Just like Dracula, Santa Claus is based on a real person. Santa Claus' story came from St. Nicholas. “St. Nicholas was a Bishop who lived in the fourth century in a place called Myra in Asia Minor (now called Turkey). He was a very rich man because his parents died when he was young and left him a lot of money. He was also a very kind man and had a reputation for helping the poor and giving secret gifts to people who needed it” (Cooper). Santa Claus also gives people gifts to this day.

- “He sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good. So be good for goodness sake!” (Coots and Gillespie). The man is all knowing, benevolent, loving, generous, and kind. He can see people’s every action, and keeps a list of the good and bad that they have done. He rewards if they have done good, and punishes if they have done bad. He lives far away in a mystical, magical, un-chartable place. His name is Santa Claus. Or, is it God. There are undeniable parallels between the two.... [tags: Religion]

- “Buy a girl a drink?” I heard from my stool at the bar. I watched the heavily painted brunette wink, then brush her thinly veiled cleavage against the CHL’s player of the week. She wears a uniform of sorts consisting of a tank top, barely there skirt, and f*ck me pumps. Her name is Tiffany. Part of my job requirements as an Ice Girl is to hang out at the post game party spot interacting with fans. Tiffany has become a regular, and tonight, is dying to tell me about her latest rendezvous. She pulls up the stool next to mine, then on a wave of boozy breath, spills her most recent “Puck Bunny” experience: “…So I was invited over to one of the guy’s apartments, but I didn’t want to go by myself,...

- Do you ever wonder what type of characteristics of a fictional character you have. Everybody wants to know themselves. Everybody wants to know what other people see in them or what they think when they look at them. The three fictional characters that most represent my personality are Bugs Bunny from Looney Tunes for his seriousness at times and goofiness, Marvin the Martian for his quietness and cleverness, and SpongeBob Squarepants for being so gullible. Although Bugs Bunny is a rabbit who is one of the main characters in the Looney Tunes cartoons, that doesn't mean we don't have similarities; we both are sometimes serious and at the same time goofy.The audience is first introduced to Bug...

Children would say “Yes,” but adults would say “No.” This is because children believe that Santa Claus gives them a lot of gifts on Christmas day, but adults know the gifts are given by their parents. Christmas is the most popular holiday all over the world, and most families get together and spend time on dinner in the United States. Children enjoy everything such as Santa Claus and reindeer as reality, but adults just have fun with an atmosphere of the event through Christmas songs and illuminations....

When I was a kid, my two brothers and I would be bouncing off the walls with excitement and anticipation because we knew who would be stopping by to see us later that evening.

- Santa Claus Does Exist So you don’t believe in Santa Claus. It’s understandable. We find ourselves in an age of pure skepticism. We question everything. Science has taken hold of our lives, providing answers for all questions and dismissing anything that cannot be explained as either myth or fiction. So it’s quite understandable why you don’t believe, with no physical proof of his existence. It’s indeed understandable to lose sight of Father Christmas with the transformation of this holiday into one that, as of late, is used commercially as a lucrative crutch solely to make profit....
