Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories: Dear Santa

This post was originally written for Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories and posted on 6 December 2009.

Today, Genea Blogger asks the following questions on the Advent Calender of Christmas Memories:

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 remember writing letters to Santa when I was a child. Did they ever get mailed? I doubt it. As for making a list, we absolutely made them yearly and hoped that we were good enough to get everything we asked for.

As for believing in Santa, of course I do! If you do not believe, you do not get any gifts.

I will say that while we are on the subject of Santa, I think it is great that he finally writes letters back to the kids that write to him. About 9-10 years ago, my three kids all wrote their letters to Santa and each one got a reply (postmarked from the North Pole)! How excited they were to get those letters.

  1. I’ve read several blogs today that mention receiving a note from Santa. What a nice idea. My children never received a note from Santa, but they did get a phone call once.

    1. Wendy,

      The note was nice and I was glad that my kids got one. Even better, when the oldest was abt 2-3, Santa stopped by the house after delivering all his presents because he left one for her in the bottom f his bag, by mistake. Her face was priceless!
      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.
