Advent Calendar Memories – 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?

I know I must have sent a letter or two to Santa when I was young.  I know we visited Santa a few times too.  No pictures exist, as far as I am aware. I remember when we lived in El Paso, our house did not have a fireplace…boy we used to worry a lot about how Santa was going to get in to leave us our presents!

Visiting Santa was always something fun that we did with our son, Graham.  He attended the same preschool and after school program for many years when he was young.  The best part was that the same gentleman played Santa every year. He had a real white beard and mustache, too.  My son grew up believing that this guy really had to be Santa because he saw him every year!
