My husband and I told our children that sometimes Santa came to visit good little children in person when they were very good.
It was 1962 and we had three little ones ages 6, 4 and 2 years. We were waiting until we could leave our own home to go to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for Christmas Eve dinner and the opening of gifts. Of course the little ones were very excited but were being very good.v
It just happened that my sister got her hands on a Santa suit. So it was all set for Santa to come to see our children.
We heard a knock on the door and we said, “Maybe it is Santa.” We opened the door and sure enough there he was.
The children were very shy and just stared at him. He gave them a gift and talked to each of them and then said that he had to go and finish delivering toys to other good girls and boys. When he left we got the children busy talking about the visit of Santa. They wanted to see him fly off in his sleigh but when we opened the door, he was gone.
