Calling all Genea-Musings Fans:
It’s Saturday Night again –
Time for some more Genealogy Fun!!
Did you ever send a letter to Santa Claus?
I don’t remember writing to Santa.
Did you ever visit Santa and “make a list?”
I don’t remember visiting Santa or making a list. However, I do remember going thru the Sears Christmas catalog. I don’t think we actually marked up the catalog, but we did talk about our ‘wishes’ with our parents.
Do you still believe in Santa Claus?
Yes, I believe in Santa Claus. I believe in the magic and wonder that Santa Claus adds to the Christmas holidays.
When did you find out the ‘truth’ about Santa?
I believe I heard ‘rumors’ from my classmates that Santa wasn’t real. That Christmas, Santa brought a yellow truck with a ‘Michigan’ logo for one of my brothers. Since my father had been in Michigan for summer school, I concluded that my dad brought the truck back from Michigan. When I said something along those lines, my mom asked me to keep quiet so that I didn’t ‘ruin’ the magic for my younger brothers.
Pictured below are my brothers on Christmas morning. This picture is likely a year or two before I questioned my parents about Santa.
