A Wal Mart encounter

I experienced something odd while out shopping at a Wal Mart in the small North Carolina town of Elizabethtown. I entered the door along with a young African American girl who looked to be 7 or 8 years old. "Look," she exclaimed, "It's Santa Claus..." Her voice trailed off as she stopped dead in her tracks and a puzzled look came over her face. I looked and noticed that to our right was a black Santa Claus about as tall as the girl. "Wait, he's..." Once again her voice stopped. Then as children of that age are prone to do, she stopped her train of thought and gleefully headed for the toy section.
