Santa Claus is Coming To Town

Well, he is for me anyhow...

So, I have been discussing Santa with my husband a lot this year, it came up because as my Swiss nephew(s) get older, the customs differences are a bit more pronounced since things I would do for my American niece and nephews are different than what I'm able to do for the Swiss side of my family.

Out of the discussion though, was hubby asking about my belief in Santa, which is still quite strong even at the ripe old age of 42. The thing is though, that for me, Santa is a representation of the fun side of "the spirit of the season" (as opposed to the religious aspect) rather than just the jolly old guy who brings presents.

Hubby seems to think I'm a bit silly - I agree that I am, but then, that's the point anyhow, right?

Re: Santa Claus is Coming To Town

My niece still calls him "Farmer" Christmas which always gives the family a good giggle.

Whenever we're in the UK for Christmas my mum still stuffs a pillow case with our presents and a big sock with stocking fillers as a kind of tradition.
