Advent Calendar- Santa Claus
Santa exists in my family much as he does for Virgina. My mother speaks of him coming to her home to deliver her gift on Christmas Eve just as he came to mine personally every Christmas Eve with a special gift inside his bag just for me. I was always amazed that Santa had enough time to come to see me personally.
Yes, there were times when I questioned his existence, but I was always afraid that if I doubted Santa, then all the magic of Christmas was over. What a miserable world we would live in then to my way of thinking. Now, as a parent I have been blessed with the continuation of Santa all over again, and even though he has changed in circumstances over the time of our lives, he still lives, and I find no statue or picture more endearing to me in all the hustle than that of a child's action of placing out a plate of cookies-- with some vegetables for the reindeer on Christmas Eve, no matter what the age.
