Santa has found his new home,
No more must he from cold to warm roam...



A desert island,

A cooler of beer,

Warm weather,

Beach gear,

All the components of a vacation so far away from near…


Santa must have again lost his sleigh,

For on this island beach he does stranded, lay,

With Donner, Blitzen & Rudolph he does play,

I think he is happy to just on this beach stay…


Mrs. Claus can’t find him, so sad,

Santa is not at all and in anyway mad,

He has found his niche, ain’t it a bitch?

No more Santa Claus; no this is not a glitch…


Peace found for Santa,

Around his island he does ride on the back of a manta,

No more need for reindeer, no more cold nights,

Even better here than it would be in Atlanta…

Oh no, Santa, please come back! I believe! The old magic and symbolism of what you stand for isn't far away. The new way of commercialism can take a hike. Many of us still believe in the gift of giving. Enjoy your vacation and return as your jolly self! b
