Christmas Advent Blog Adventure: day 10
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/life-line/
Welcome to Day 10 of the Great Advent Blog Adventure! For today, the two topics I will explore are:
From the Christmas Postathon (https://4wallsnaroof.wordpress.com/2015/11/30/the-christmas-postathon/): Have you sat on Santa’s lap?
And from the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories (http://adventcalendar.geneabloggers.com/): Tell us about your family’s Christmas traditions and your memories of Christmases past.
I spoke to the traditions (or lack thereof, or to be more honest, a lack of my memory of any real Christmas “traditions” from childhood) yesterday. As for Santa, I have been told I did sit on his lap, not necessarily happily when I was very young. I mean, who makes little kids sit on a stranger’s lap and ask him for presents? It’s a pretty weird tradition in our “be scared of everyone we don’t know” culture. But like the traditions, I have forgotten any specific time when I may have sat on the lap of someone with a beard in a red furry suit.
Speaking of laps, here is Elliot on mine.
