It's Christmas Week and Ali Williams is talking about the Pink Heart Society Male on Monday to rival all Male on Mondays...Santa!
I'm a big fan of winter holidays, and an even bigger fan of the main man himself. Whether you know him as Father Christmas, Kris Kringle or just plain old Santa, he's an absolute delight. And, when you break it down, pretty much an alpha hero...
Santa the International Businessman
Not only does he own his own business, he also has a veritable army of underlings to do his bidding. Plus, he has runs world class factories that deal exclusively in stocking-fillers.
He flies all over the world every year, and clearly has had some of the best marketing executives working on his all important image.
Santa the Lumbersexual
Everyone's crazy about the lumbersexual look these days; who doesn't love a well-groomed beard when paired with the very best leather boots? Well guess where it started?
Got it in one! Kris Kringle's been rocking that beard for years now, and boy does he wear it well!
Santa the Animal Lover
But just because he's the ultimate alpha male, doesn't undercut how sweet and sensitive he is. We're talking about someone who has his own team of reindeer, who looks after them and makes sure that they're well-fed. Carrot anyone?
Santa the Secret Billionaire
Despite the fact that he's clearly incredibly well-off, he still has time every year to give to children all over the world. All paid out of his own pocket, and despite numerous attempts by children to wait up and catch him, he never sticks around to take the credit.
Santa the Married Man
However, ladies, there is disappointment afoot. He is, of course, married to Mrs Santa Claus, aka Angela Lansbury. Making him a legend.
So if you're looking for a Santa of your own, why not try Tori Carrington's Red Hot Santa. We're talking Santa with sass...
Ali Williams grew up in Croydon and spent her teenage years in a convent girls' school. She then fled to university where she discovered champagne cocktails, a capella singing and erotica.
These days she blogs about perceptions of romance, chick lit and women in society and spends an extraordinary amount of time coercing male friends to pose with her favourite Mills & Boon books to the bemusement of the Twittersphere.
