Santa Piñata

Yes, nothing says Christmas like taking a swing at Santa's head with a wooden stick. I found this at an antique store south of Richmond. I'll bet the owner never thought he'd get rid of it. Santa's white beard is kind of yellowed and tattered, like it has been around a long time.

I'll bet someone brought this piñata to a school, thinking it would be a fun treat for the kids, but instead, it made them cry. "Wah!!! We're not going to hit Santa! He brings us presents! Wah!!" And frankly, I don't blame them.
