This weekend, Santa's showing up early. Like everyone else, he thinks we should skip Thanksgiving and start calling the day after Halloween "Christmas Eve." He has nothing against the food binge that Thanksgiving provides, but he doesn't count it as a holiday because it only makes shitty movies. To Santa, if a holiday doesn't make for a funny movie, "it's a fucking stupid holiday, ho-ho-ho." So, he'll be floating across the pond at The Modern soon, and his lap will be all warmed up and ready for you to sit on. From 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, bring your camera and take a picture of you and Santa (Don't know how to pose with Santa? Here are some ideas: You could go traditional and sit on his lap. Give him bunny ears. Chest bump him. Stand back to back with him, lookin' tough. Throw Santa gang signs. Or, smile.) in the Modern Shop at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St. The event is free. Call 817-738-9215 or visit themodern.org.
