December 6 - Santa Claus Did you ever send a letter to Santa? Did you ever visit Santa and “make a list?” Do you still believe in Santa Claus?
When we were little Santa was a big deal. We believed in Santa and my parents took all kinds of steps to keep the mystery going. When they put us to bed Christmas Eve, my parents would wait until we were all asleep, and then start decorating the tree, setting up the train set, and putting the presents under the tree. With 7 kids in the family, my parent also made sure that the older kids (I was one of them) didn’t ruin the Santa mystery for the youngest kids. It was always someone at school that eventually ruined the Santa mystery. My parent always took an afternoon nap on Christmas after lunch. Can’t blame them!
