Santa vs Pirate

I noticed the other day when we were driving by some newly posted Christmas lights on our street that JD was saying "pa" or pirate. I thought that was odd so I tried to figure out why he might be saying that.

Here are my thoughts on how Santa and a Pirate might be similar in the eyes of a toddler.

Santa says "Ho Ho Ho!"

A Pirate says "Yo Ho Ho!"

Santa has a big fluffy beard.

A lot of Pirates have big fluffy beards.

Santa has big black boots.

A Pirate has big black boots.

Santa wears a cool hat.

A Pirate has a cool hat.

Santa has a big sleigh to ride in.

A Pirate has a big ship to ride in.

Santa gives out lumps of coal to bad little boys.

A Pirate makes bad little boys walk the plank.

Okay, that's about all I could come up with, but the similarities are there!
