This was entered in the 2016 Santapasta contest, hosted by Midnight Marinara.
Do you know what Santa keeps in his pockets?
I asked my mom once. She told me he has big, deep ones filled with reindeer food. We always put out carrots on Christmas Eve with Santa’s cookies, but one time Ms. Flemming made us put Raisin Bran and glitter in a jar with ribbons on it and told us that’s what they ate. Do deer like raisins? They’re gross!
Dad told me they’re full of coal for bad little kids, and that if I stole and ate Mom’s baking chocolate from the kitchen cabinet again, Santa would keep his toys in his sleigh for a more behaved boy or girl and put black rocks under our tree instead.
I saw on TV one time that Santa carries magic. He uses it to make his sleigh and reindeer fly, and grant wishes, and help him go around the whole world! He’d reach into his big red coat and pull out some pretty sparkling dust. He’d just throw it at something and POOF! Problem solved! A couple times, I wished Santa would make my math homework all finished, but he never did…
I have a friend in class, and his name is Zachery. Every Tuesday he has a tuna salad sandwich and celery sticks in his lunch. He lets me play with his Ninja Turtles sometimes. He’s nice, even if he does like tuna and celery. I think they’re almost as gross as raisins! Zachery thinks that Santa just uses them to put all his cookies in. He thinks he can’t eat that many cookies in one night, so he just saves them all for later. Zachery told me he once tried to eat a bunch of ice cream in one night and he got really sick. Maybe Santa’s like a squirrel and just stores them all for later.
I saw Santa while mom was shopping once. I got to sit on his lap, and I told him that I wanted Bebop and Rocksteady for Christmas so that I could play with Zachery. Mom took our picture and he patted me on the head. He didn’t say a lot. There was something in his pocket. I sat on it. It felt like I sat on a window after it was snowing outside. I press my nose up against them sometimes to look, even though mom tells me not to. It was really cold. It felt long. Mom took me to the car right away so I couldn’t ask him what it was.
We didn’t go back there ever. Mom didn’t let me see Santa this year, so I didn’t get to ask him what he had. I sent him a letter, but I didn’t get mail back from him yet. It didn’t feel like food, or coal, or magic sand or cookies.

Is this a pasta all about Santa being happy to see someone?!

Oh myyyyyyyyyy

I feel the build up to it was well done, showing each person's different perspective on what Santa keeps in his pockets. I do think the TV part lost me, it just felt generic?

I really want to know if you meant if Santa had a bonner since I can assure you those are NOT cold. ( Also poor Mall Santa getting a RB when the kids come. )

I wrote it with a gun in mind but a knife also works. You're welcome to interpret it as Santa's little icicle if that's what you're into though.
Thanks for the feedback though; I'm glad that you enjoyed most of the buildup. Lately I've been trying to write from experiences I've had, so that I can write more genuinely. That stupid raisin craft was something I actually did when I was younger, though I don't think I did it in Ms. Flemming's class (an actual teacher I had mind you). I've also gotten in trouble for taking chocolate out of my mother's baking materials when I wasn't supposed to as a kid, and the cupboard hiding spot for gifts from my Pokepasta was based on my childhood as well. The show this protagonist is describing is actually based on something I grew up with as well. I based it on a program called "The Secret World of Santa Claus", which featured a Santa with similar magical powers if I'm remembering right. I remember as a stupid child I actually would leave notes for Santa on Christmas Eve asking for him to grant a wish for me. That was probably pretty embarrassing for my parents. Anyways, I used it so that I could have another example of something since I was a tiny bit starved for ideas otherwise. I totally see where you're coming from though, reading this now. It's not really specific enough since I didn't say what the show was called and isn't as personal as the other examples. If I were to ever rewrite this, I'd probably omit that section or change it to an aunt or sibling's statement instead.
Thanks again for your comment.

It that a rocket in Santa's pocket? or was he just pleased to see you?

I actually read it as a gun... it was a nice little creepy read.

It kind of creeps me out because I wonder about the type of people that could apply to be mall Santa's. In the old days the kids would sit on Santa's lap.. you're not allowed to anymore, at least in England anyway. Not sure about the law in other places.

And finally... raisins are awesome.. I keep a big bag on my kitchen counter top and put them in all my cereals, cakes, cookies etc..
