We celebrate Christmas.
We decorate a tree.
We give gifts.
We hang stockings.
'Santa' leaves something practical in them.
We have always been honest when our kids got to the age where they asked if Santa really lives in the North Pole, has flying reindeer and elves and comes down our chimney with gifts.
We will do the same with our Grandchildren.
But for now, we will just smile and pack away the Santa suit and see what happens next year.
Friendie had no idea that was his Grampie behind those glasses and tacky beard.
And why would his Grampie have a Santa suit?
Because his good friend purchased two of them for their Christmas Eve morning run!
They ran 6 miles in full costume!
They did need to stop at the hospital admissions desk though....
skinny Santa needed a pin to hold his pants up!!!
And that is why Santa appeared at our house this year.
