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!
if Christmas isn’t found in your heart, you won’t find it under a tree."
