no because we didn't have a chimney, so of course like all little kids wonder, 'how did he get in?' well i think my sister told me one time that santa had a magic remote that could open any door and he came in through our front door. i so believed it, i thought it was cool that he'd open the door.

i wanted to. we went to midnight mass and then we opened presents and by that time i was so tired. my mom said that if i wanted him to come i'd have to go to sleep and he wouldn't come until i did. so that was that. i never did leave santa cookies. i remember saying to my mom that i wanted to leave santa dinner (we used to always have Portuguese soup and rice when we came home from mass, like a family tradition) and i wanted to give him some of our dinner because i said that santa would be tired of eating cookies all night. my mom told me since hawaii was one of santas lasts stops that he'd be full by then and didn't need anything. when i think about it now, it was pretty funny and pretty good of my mom to come up with those.

Like most children all over the world, my cousins, me, and my siblings, were also told that a magical person by the name of Santa Claus, came in the house to deliver gifts to people; particularly to children. However, the story about the chimney being his entry isn't possible here in our country because we don't have chimneys over here. But aside from gifts, the older folks told us to hang our socks on top of the windows because Santa would fill them with coins or candies. Even then when we were about 9 to 10 years old, we were beginning to doubt if Santa Claus was a real person and if the stories we were told were true. Inspite of this, we still practiced sleeping early at night during Christmas time and hanging socks by the windows; because the feeling of excitement was overwhelming specially early in the morning, when we have already discovered what gifts and how much each one got. Now that we're grown-ups, we are the ones telling young kids to do the same but in some houses, this isn't practiced anymore. Christmas season is coming pretty fast and the breeze is getting colder.
