Hey Scaredy Cats. I still remember when I found out that Santa wasn’t real. I’m going to peel back the curtain a little bit here and admit one of my embarrassing secrets. I was in grade seven, standing in line for French class. A bunch of my classmates were making fun of me for believing in Santa because generally by the age of eleven you know the truth. But not me. Whether I was just incredibly naïve or my parents were just really good liars, or a bit of both, I still believed. To this day, one of my favourite teacher was that French teacher, Mr. Ikasala, because he came out of the classroom, overheard what was happening and said that he still believed in Santa Claus. I knew then that he was just trying to make me feel better, but it meant a lot. The illusion may have been destroyed, but I didn’t become a Christmas obsessed and homicidal Santa. The same can’t be said for the main character in the 1980 film, Christmas Evil, which incidentally, is John Waters’ favourite Christmas movie.
I’m your host Sherri and this is just your friendly reminder that as always there will be loads of spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the movie, go watch it! Otherwise, proceed at your own risk.
