A Christmas Memory

December 1, 2009

santaOne Christmas many years ago, Gracie and I invited our grandchildren home for Christmas. We had a tree, presents…and Gracie had the idea for me to dress up and be Santa Claus.

So, I got a red suit, a long, white beard, a special pillow for my stomach, black boots, and a big red hat with a tassel on it. I looked great.
That evening I rang the doorbell, and Gracie opened the door. She pretended to be surprised and exclaimed, “Kids, look who’s here! You know who this is?” And with just one quick look, they said, “Yeah…Grandpa!”

That’s the last and only time I played Santa Claus.
