Title Uncle Santa
Description The one fun thing he loved doing most of all was being Santa Claus on Christmas Eve He looked forward to this outing all year He didn't do it for money or anyone's acclaim It was a private thing for him and his family and friends, and he was careful to keep his outing a secret. His wife, Erma, and her friend, Carole Hoover, sewed him a wonderful costume, complete with boots, wig, beard, hat and a belt with bells. Being a small man, he made a most authentic Santa when the pillow was secured under his belt. Somehow he did destroy more than one costume on his rounds Erma kindly repaired or sewed a new costume for him. Erma never saw the children's excitement when Santa visited them; she waited at home-She was truly Santa's helper-Mrs. Santa Claus. On that night, Don's friends or his brothers drove for him and waited in the car at the houses Doors were left unlocked for Santa to come, and come he did. After a knock, he walked into the house, jingling his bells, right into the child's bedroom If the house was dark, all the better-he knew where their bedrooms were. He loved children, and on this night their eyes shone with love for him. He began his rounds at the appropriate hour around midnight. This was magic time for sleeping kids, but not so for the parents Most of the time the parents had just got into bed, when they heard the bells, and, of course, the kids were up playing with their toys. One year Sharon Dyches got a red wagon and Beverly got a trike After Santa left, they went around and around the house for hours. Finally their Mom and Dad gave up at 6:00 am and went back to bed One year my folks got a call from a frustrated parent 41
