One Christmas season, my girlfriend & I were visiting her aunt outside town who lived directly across the street from a sizable pine forest. Having gone for a walk in the woods, who do we bump into but a lost man? Not just any old man, but one we all know — the guy with the red suit, the big belly, the jolly laugh, & the flowing white beard: Santa!
