My ex when she was a kid believed in him until she was almost into high school. The mother just kept telling her:'The children who DON'T beleive, DON'T get ANYTHING..pay them no HEED. they are trying to DECIEVE you.." When high school came around, they started to SWEAT and said;'Uh, hun..you know how we told you to just keep believing, NO MATTER WHAT???? Well..."
She cried for days.
But Christmas is great, really wonderful, my second fave holiday, we celebrate it a bit differently at my place..( how can you tell???) and we'll have lots of time to get into that..my kids are 23 and 15 and my grand daughter is 3..I'm a psych nurse by occupation, and I usually wind up working that day...MORAL: don't drink, don't over do it. Take care. Love your family. Relax. Or you wake up looking into my deep brown eyes and I turn to you and say:"Man, you should have LISTENED when I posted that notice to relax before you turned into Clark Griswald. Now. This won't hurt a bit.."
Run run Rudolph, Santa's got to make it on time..
