Day #6 Topic: Favorite holiday memory from YOUR childhood

One of my favorite holiday memories is when I got to help be "Santa" for my little brother for the first time. I don't remember exactly how old I was (maybe 7 or 8) and I had started to suspect that Santa wasn't "real." I was afraid to ask because if it turned out he wasn't and I confirmed it, then he might just stop coming to our house. LOL

I finally got up the nerve to ask my parents about it, and we agreed that I wouldn't spill the beans to my brother (he is 5 1/2 yrs younger so he would have been about 2-3 yrs old at the time). Not only that, but since I was now in on the big secret, I could help "be" Santa.

It was great! I was so excited to wait up after he went to sleep and help put out the presents from Santa. Of course, the best part about playing the role of Santa is getting to help eat the cookies that we left out for him :). Yum!

Here we are on Christmas day, 1981. Isn't he a cutie?

How fun! My oldest son finally got a chance to help 'play' Santa last year when he was 11 and he finally gave in that he didn't believe in Santa anymore. My 11 year old this year is still 100% convinced that there's a Santa!

I think so, but then again, I'm biased... :)
