DID YOU BELIEVE IN SANTA?

I was six years old when I found out the shocking truth. That Santa Claus was a fairy tale :( I wanted so much to see him, catch him putting gifts under our Christmas tree. So I woke up much earlier in the morning, i tiptoed down the stairs only to see our mother, also on her toes, putting goodies under our Christmas tree. I was breathing heavily and I wanted to cry. Instead, I slowly and silently took the steps back to our bedroom. Our three other younger siblings depended their Christmas delight on those Christmas socks and presents galore from Santa. I couldn't just ruin it.

So now, it's time to pass on the torch! lol A friend asked me, if later my son also finds out about the 'shocking truth' what will I do? I keep thinking and thinking about a contingency plan, but I couldn't come up with anything. For now I will just let my Abe be the child that he is supposed to be.


Abe's first Christmas sock



See the obvious delight in his face the first time he woke up to find his Chrismas sock containing goodies? A week later he thought of a brilliant idea. He hang a big plastic bag instead! How hilarious. And before he went to sleep, he shoved in some of his toys in the bag saying, "Para dugangan na lang ni Santa Claus." (So that Santa will only be adding something into it) I told him that he's breaking the tradition, to his feisty protests. Now I think I will have to look for a really big sock.


I never got to talk to my parents about their 'lie'. Nevertheless Santa Claus brought me much delight as a little girl and it's all that matters. Because of it, Christmas became my most favorite season of the year, like most of us. Imagine Jesus Christ being born and we all would have to celebrate and exchange gifts?? I tell the same story to my Gabriel, so that he too, will have something to tell his children someday.

Now, for a contingency plan...
