Meet The Weirdos Who Never Had Santa

 

By Mollie Hemingway

December 20, 2013

 

I grew up without Santa. This is no big deal to me but friends have gasped when they heard this. Most everyone who celebrates Christmas has a story about how they discovered Santa wasn’t real. I don’t. I was deluged with gifts as a child and couldn’t really have fonder memories of Christmas. It’s just that my mother decided she wanted to be truthful with her kids — no Santa.

 

Somehow this resulted in her developing a later-in-life obsession with the jolly old fellow and she now has an untold number of Santas in her house. There are Vaillancourt Santas and Eldreth Salt-Glazed Pottery Santas and Hearts & Ivy Santas. My entire inheritance is wrapped up in various vintage and folk art Santas.

 

I, on the other hand, have carried on the tradition of not having Santa with my children. Scissors-32x32.png
