The answer my mother would always give was a firm no. And trust me, I tried my hardest to wear that woman down.
The other question I would always ask was is there really a Santa. This was a question that I started asking around the fourth or fifth grade as the hot topic on the playground was that Santa didn’t exist.
I’ve always been leery of the rumor mill, so after hearing it for the first time, I went to a source I knew was honest. Dear old Mom. And here’s the answer I always got “If you believe in Santa than he does exist.”
As an adult, I think that is a beautiful answer. But as a pesky little kid, I found it aggravating. Yes or no was the answer I so desperately thought I needed. Again, I’d beg and plead. But the answer was always the same. Thanks to some quick thinking by my mom and her don’t cave attitude, I still believe Santa exists. To this day if I asked her the same question, I know I’d get the same exact answer.
I certainly hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season. I hope everyone is able to spend this special time of year with their family and friends. May the magic of the season bless your family and the new year bring nothing but brightness and cheer.
