Advent calendar of Christmas Memories: 6th December –Santa Claus


A visit with Santa is magical. The wish: "all I want for Xmas is my 2 front teeth".

Thomas MacEntee at Geneabloggers is encouraging us to celebrate the 2011 Christmas season with a series of posts called the Advent Calendar of Memories. This is today’s entry.

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 guess at some stage as a child I would have sent a letter to Santa and made a list.

Certainly I visited one of the ubiquitous Santas in the shops. My baby book says that when I was not-quite-three, I really enjoyed seeing Santa but that when I was two-ish I was still quite shy.

Santa arrives by fire engine at Boroko East Pre-School in Port Moresby 1977.

I don’t think I was very old when I discovered my Santa presents at the bottom of my parents’ wardrobes…needless to say I was clever enough not to let on I’d put two and two together…why spoil the fun for all of us

I love the look on children’s faces when they see Santa and all the Christmas “sparkles”….the magic and wonder light up their faces and everyone round them shares their delight.

How did Santa arrive where you live? Our children have seen him arrive in planes, cars and fire trucks.
