This Santa is usually on the mantle with all of my other Santas, but I thought I'd put him against a black background so the smoke would show up better. I must have put him in a drafty place because, at first, the smoke was just blowing back in his face. I finally got the smoke to go up, but I wanted some nice curly smoke .... and this is all he would give me. Santa was not cooperating with me today. :-)

"Let me see if I've got this Santa business straight. You say he wears a beard, has no discernible source of income and flies to cities all over the world under cover of darkness? You sure this guy isn't laundering illegal drug money?"
