After opening gifts one Christmas morning, my daughter looks at her brother and says, “This is a lot better Christmas than last year!” I asked, “Why?” She volunteers, “Because this year we didn’t know everything we were getting.” I realized that I should start hiding the gifts better!

It’s not really funny, but: Every year, my grandmother asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and I sent her a list of kits. I think she took the list to a hobby store and handed it to the clerk. The result was a bunch of models that kept me in the workshop through the rest of the summer holidays.

When the kids were little and we had just moved to Wisconsin, we stayed awhile with my wife’s parents. On Christmas morning, as the presents began to run thin, I realized the remainder were still in black trash bags hidden in the garage. That was a little tricky. “Saaaay! Look what Santa did!”

Well, there was that time when I was real young and my sister and I thought someone was breaking into the house on Christmas Eve. Maybe it was Santa, maybe our parents putting presents under the tree … No matter — we still ended up barricading ourselves in my room.

One Christmas Eve, Uncle Eddie (always our Santa) came down with a stomach bug during dinner. We improvised, asking a neighbor, who was big enough, but nothing like Eddie! He agreed. But did the suit fit? No. Did the beard fit? No. We had a saggy, poorly stuffed Santa with a weak Ho, Ho, Ho!
