My Christmas Traditions: #4 The Santas
(Dover, NH) - Christmas decorations don't go up in our home until after December 2 (my birthday), and the first ones up are our Santas.
For over 30 years, I was purchasing a new Santa each Christmas to add to our mantle.
The collection includes Santas handed down from past generations of our families....
to the traditional Coca Cola Santa ( this one in a snow globe).......
to several, like the one on the right, that we received from a friend who was working in Russia.
Some of the Santas are as small as an inch or two tall, dwarfed by those up to a foot tall.
They come in all shapes and sizes and colors, but all represent the man we have come to know as Father Christmas.
