Santa Claus–Advent Calendar

In Christmas on December 6, 2009 at 10:04 AM

I actually don’t recall ever really writing a letter to Santa, nor even sitting on his knee (this is going to require a call to mom for confirmation!).  I know my sister did as we have a picture of it.  As did my mom as a child–there’s a picture of it.  When I was in college, my roommate and I went and sat on Santa’s knee–there’s a picture of that too.  As we somewhat shyly stepped forward Santa said “Come on girls, Santa likes children of all ages!” and we all laughed.

I was 7 when my somewhat older cousins “told” me about Santa Claus and who he was and wasn’t.  But now I’m not so sure they were right.  Every christmas season I still get unexpected gifts, sure they say “Love from Mom” or such, but they still make me giddy with delight.  And then there’s the jovial air that lasts all December long.  There are still some things that aren’t explained, so yes, I do still believe in Santa Claus.  If I didn’t, I couldn’t hear that bell ring, right?  I check every year–still hear it loud and clear!
