WASHINGTON, D.C.

Santa smoking and the impact for kids with parents that smoke.

Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, October 26, 2012,
Dear Santa,

I would like three things for Christmas. The first thing I would like the most is for my dad to stop smoking. He wastes money on cigarettes. Now he does not even spend time with us. It can also hurt his lungs.

The second thing I would like is some perfume. It is called “so perfect”. You can get it at Macy’s in the mall for $30.00.

The third thing I want for Christmas is new earrings. They look like reindeer. You can get them at Walmart for $5.99.

Who Highjacked Santa ?

Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, October 19, 2012,


Who highjacked Santa? The tobacco industry's commercial exploitation of Santa to sell cigarettes are worth raising when questions are asked about your adaptation of a classic.

Go to http://tobacco.stanford.edu/ and then Tobacco Advertising Thermes > Infants > Santa Puffing

Murad ads are dated 1920. Tareyton is from 1970 — so Santa imagery spans at least half a century of tobacco advertising.

Another way to find a set of Santa ads on this site, not quite as inc...

 I applaud you for making the edit to a classic poem by C. C.
 Moore. As a Santa that has worked in many venues around the U.S. over the
 last 14 years, I have come to realize the way that Children look at
 Santa and the need for him to be a good example for all Children. When
 I started reading the great poem to children many times throughout the year, I have
 purposefully edited the line about the pipe out of my reading. On occasion I have receive...

French and Spanish Editions are in bindery

Posted by pamela mccoll on Saturday, August 11, 2012,
It is just days away until the books are packed up in boxes and the distribution starts that we have been working on for almost a year now. It is not always the case that a publisher releases translations in the same year as launching the book but I felt there was a market for spanish and french books so I thought it would meet the market - so why wait.
The book is finding support and it is only every once in awhile that I find someone who says hands off the classics. The classics will always...
