Advent Calendar - December 6 Santa Claus

This Blog is pleased to join with other GeneaBloggers around the world in presenting this Advent Calendar over the next 24 days leading up to the Christmas celebration. There will be a different topic each day. I will attempt to post on each of the topics.

Did you ever send a letter to Santa? Did you ever visit Santa and “make a list?” Do you still believe in Santa Claus?

I am sure I wrote a letter to Santa as a child but that is the best I can do with this memory. As a child Santa Claus came to visit us at my Grandma and Grandpa Day's house on Christmas eve. A big jolly fella in his red suit, I thought he kinda resembled Vern from our church. But of course Vern resembled Santa all year round.

My sister reminded me that one year our cousin Bonnie told us there was no real Santa Claus. My sister says her heart was crushed. I knew Bonnie was lying and teasing us and I still believe that today.
Of course there is a Santa Claus and he lives in the heart of true believers all year round. I love this wonderful, generous Jolly Old Man. I even see him on the street waving to us as we drive by this time of the year. And of course I always wave back. You gotta love that guy.

I am doing these Christmas memories of my childhood only. I will print and give to my sons and grandchildren for them to read if they like someday.
