Everyone’s Santa is Imperfect.

You may not have gotten everything you wanted this year, but rest assured that no matter how disappointing and or dysfunctional your family’s gift ritual is, you are not alone. Take comfort in this excerpt from A Poor Little Rich Girl at Christmas:

Santa's on his way!

Ms. Lowell will not fall down drunk as she attempts stealthily to haul a pillowcase of presents down the staircase, as her mother once did. “We heard her voice saying, ‘Damn it!’ ” Ms. Lowell said, referring to herself and a sister. “When we called out ‘Who is it?’ her voice came back: ‘Oh, darlings, it’s Santa Claus. Shhhh!’ ”

The New York Times is getting really good (too good?) at reminding us how dysfunctional we all are.
