8th Day of Christmas

Vintage Santa Claus

Santa Claus has his busy night on December 25th, but it doesn’t mean he goes away for another year. In many homes, he lives in the hearts and minds of those that keep the spirit of giving in their hearts.

I love to relive childhood memories and although my kids have grown beyond Santa it brings a smile to my face to remember those days when I did believe. My Godmother gave me a vintage Santa (the same one pictured below) and it is over 50 years old.

Ironically my husband received the same Santa. His sister though this was a scary Santa and was afraid of him sitting on the couch. My husband thinks he looks mean, but I loved his real feel Santa beard and always had him propped

This is just one more thing we have in common.

I won’t say how old my husband is, but he just had a milestone birthday and I did call the Santa vintage. Better term than “old” I think don’t you? All I will say is sometime in the 1960’s “Vintage Santa” graced our households and Christmas trees.

  1. The first Christmas that my roommate and I spent on our own we were very broke. We couldn’t really afford ornaments so we bought chocolates and hung them on the tree so we could also eat them (did I mention we were really really broke lol) since then I hang some on the tree every year to remind me how blessed I now am. That’s my tradition.
