Meet Nick Kringle:
Nick started out as a mechanical Santa that I bought in an after Christmas sale about five years ago.
Even though the Walgreens where I bought him is in a predominantly black section of Decatur, there were no African American Santas available so Nick languished in storage until last month when a very special lady arrived. The competition for her attention has been keen, but Nick is determined to win her so he badgered me to make him presentable. He is hoping that his smooth dance moves and mellow tones on the saxophone will melt the lady’s heart.
