Advent Calendar, Santa Claus

GeneaBloggers has a Advent Calendar event this year, 24 days of family history related subjects to challenge the researcher. The prompt/challenge for December 6th is:

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

Letter to Santa, I must have, I mean, you just HAVE to write a letter to Santa.  He knows who was naughty and nice, but even Santa could use a little assistance.  Can you imagine trying to remember what we all desire?  Yep, letters are a requirement of the season.

Did I ever visit Santa and "make a list"?  You bet!  And that list was reviewed and memorized!  Here I am with my brother about 1956.  I just love the look on brother's face!  He was about 4 years old, would love to know just exactly what he was thinking.



Do you still believe in Santa Claus?  You bet!  I have the photographic proof.

Carol - The expression on your face in this photo looks sooo much like a picture we took with Santa with me in it - same total grin. Love it!
