Advent Calendar-December 6-Santa Claus
I remember writing letters to Santa, leaving milk and cookies and even carrots for the reindeer. But one particular memory that has stayed with me is about believing in Santa Claus. Santa was a big deal at our house, with 5 children and 10 years between the oldest and youngest we kept the tradition going on for quite some time. I do remember believing in Santa long after my friends and peers did. One day at school several of us were talking about Santa during recess. I very matter-of-factly stated that there had to be a Santa because how could parents afford all that stuff!
