Steve: How about going back into the past, where it's more interesting? Was the original Santa a funny fat guy in 280 A.D.? No! In fact his name was St. Nicholas, not Santa Claus. Was Nick a party guy like Santa? No! Nick gave away all of his inherited wealth and traveled the countryside to help the poor and sick. Heck, he donated money for poor girls who'd otherwise be sold into prostitution! The great saint was born on Dec. 6 in what is today Turkey. After Nick's death, his birthday slowly became the date to help the poor. So, Christmas should be a giveaway to the poor, not a buy-away by the rich.
Mia: Great answer from Steve! All I'd like to add is Christmas is just one day out of a year. Why not buy a sexy elf costume and play along?
Mia: Listen to your friends. If you stick around here and the dude doesn't invite you out for New Year's Eve, you're going to be upset. You'd better get on that plane! Send him some sexy bikini pics of you on the beach. If he's the one for you, he'll be here when you get back.
