For having the nerve to blaspheme Santa, instead of "Moxley" it should be "Moxie"? (Which meant verve, nerve, bravado)
For a few years now I have had a Santa display in my haunt kitchen which is very usefull as I guage how nervous a group might be when not one of 15 customers wish to whisper in Nosfearto-Santa's ear to make a Christmas wish!
I then threaten to make a new Ravens Grin tee-shirt proclaiming:"I Was Scared Shitless In The Ravens Grin Kitchen With All The Lights ON By Nosferato-Santa!"
(He is occupying the tip of a folded up ironing board standing in the corner , leaning against the side of the stove. Just a bust, not a whole body) "He's getting bored, he's on an ironing board! Whisper in his ear, what do you want? Some bailout money? A parachute? An a airplane to go with it?"
Then if a "Whisperer" comes forward.. "Santa" will scare them.. even though he looks like he possibly couldn't.
I have always thought a haunted X-Mas could find customers among the disgruntled, which are not few in number concerning that season..
