|Santa and Satan|
The year 1959 was a year of change for my family. We moved onto a farm where we would live until 1995. So many adventures and so many memories arise from that time.
But, here is one memory that we were fortunate to miss. At least until I was grown with grown children. I never knew that side of Santa Claus’ life, which apparently originated from Mexico. “Santa Claus”, produced in 1959, was translated into English. Apparently, it received the “Golden Gate” award for family films. This is not necessarily a good thing.
The movie is thoroughly ridiculous, Santa Claus is totally creepy, and the three actors who commentate as the film progresses are brilliant. You may watch the film in its entirety on YouTube. Fast-forward may be essential here.
