Flashback to Santa Being Faulty

Today I’m going to give you a flashback to Santa being faulty and an update on his position. Oh this house is worrying. When I started looking back through the archives, I found a common theme. Continuing to use faulty Christmas decorations is not a new thing in our house. This is what Alfie wrote way back in 2011 when Aristotle was a young pup.

Santa is Faulty – 2011

Obviously I don’t mean the real Santa. I wouldn’t like to be found criticising him in any way. I worry that he might leave me off his present list in retaliation. However, while we were in Belgium we bought a rather wonderful Santa decoration that has him climbing up a string of lights. In theory you put it on the outside of your house. Then it looks as though he is climbing up to the roof. In practice we have always been too lazy to do that and he has been given pride of place in the hall, climbing up the outside of the stairs. Although why he would choose to do that when he could so easily climb up the stairs themselves certainly beats me.

Anyway, this year half his lights aren’t working and on further investigation there seems to be a loose or broken wire, but when it does connect it’s starting to get hot. So Santa has been considered unfit to plug into an electrical socket and has had his plug cut off. Santa looks very forlorn in the dark in the hall.

To bring you up to date

You may wonder what happened to our faulty Santa. Did Mum repair it? Did Mum throw it away? Neither of those things. Mum has totally removed Santa’s string of lights and he no longer has anything to climb up. Now he has to sit on a stool by the front door – oh and every so often, his head falls off!

Flashback to Santa being faulty and now nine years later looking out of the window with his trusty dog Aristotle but without his string of lights.
