when I believed in a man in a red suit.

when I thought I had to be good or get on the naughty list.

when Mom threatened to tell him I was being bad.

when the reports from Norad on the TV and radio had me peeking out the window for Rudolph’s nose in the sky.

when I sat on his lap and told him my list of wants.

when I learned he was not real!
