SG Dec 2022 Cozy Christmas Wk 4: Christmas Eve Traditions - Santa
Oops, I forgot to credit the template I used! 😱🎄
"Childhood Christmas Eves were almost more more exciting than Christmas Day. My sister and I would be ready and in the car with Dad anxiously waiting for Mom to come so we could go to Grandma’s. What was taking her so long? At Grandma’s the house smelled of fish cooking, the Italian Christmas Eve tradition of the Seven Fishes. My Mom made the kids and herself Grilled Cheese sandwiches but who was hungry? You could feel the excitement in the air, with six cousins running around and awaiting the night’s big event. Aunt Stella organized us into “talent” shows and throughout the evening someone would “call” Santa to report naughty children in hopes of reining us in. Until suddenly we heard “HO HO HO” and Santa arrived with gifts for all! Years later we learned the various adults who played Santa and strangely, we never missed a father who it might be. It was a magical night and the next morning we woke to more presents under the tree from Santa. After Christmas Dinner my family traveled to my Dad’s family and didn’t arrive home until much later that night where our own Santa presents were waiting under our tree. My Mom said she felt bad it took so long for us to get to them, but for us is was the end to a wonderful day. And what took my Mom so long to get in the car on Christmas Eve? Why, she was Santa’s elf putting all our presents under the tree while we were waiting in the car!"
