Advent Calendar 2010: December 6 – Santa Claus

[Note: Portions of this post appeared in a post that originally ran during the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories in December 2009]



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 always wrote letters to Santa Claus. I took great care in composing what I would say. I also would visit Santa with my "list". My mother would take me to see Santa at one of the local department stores, or at the Slovak Civic Federation in Duquesne.



I don't ever recall being scared or crying when I sat on Santa's lap, and I never had any trouble communicating what I wanted for Christmas. And, as I recall, Santa was always pretty good to me.


Of course I still believe in Santa Claus!! (wink, wink).
