Personal Quote: "Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional"
Now that Thanksgiving has past, I now feel it is ok to talk about this Santa person.  Well, more like ask a question.  Do you remember really believing in Santa when you were a child?  I have to say that I don't really ever remember actually believing in Santa as a child.  I knew that other kids did believe in Santa and asked him for presents, so I kinda played along with that.  I also thought it was more then a little strange that people were buying gifts even though, in my mind, Santa was supposed to bring gifts to everyone.  I had figured that Santa was supposed to bring the gifts so people didn't have to go shopping.

I asked my father about this aspect of my childhood.  I wondered if he ever got the impression that I believed in Santa, because when one is young, you don't really remember all that much.  He said he really didn't see any evidence of me believing in Santa.  He went on to say that he didn't really believe in Santa as a child either.  He treated the whole Santa thing as a social custom.  Playing along with everyone else in the social game.  He did have a Santa suit and played the part on Christmas.  Of course I knew it was my dad, from the photos that I mother took.  Mostly I knew it was him, because my father has dark skin, being Native American.

My mother never really pushed the whole Santa belief either.  She did write "From: St. Nicholas" on some presents for fun.  Of course my mother's hand writing is very distinct, seeing as the tags with "From: Mother" had the same hand writing.

Just so I'm clear, I don't hold anything against my parents for not making me believe in Santa.  They themselves didn't really see the point in it and we still had awesome Christmases together. I just wondering if anyone else might have that in common.
