I Never Believed in Santa Claus

My parents obliquely asked me what I wanted. I was afraid to tell them the truth. I hedged my answers. Asking for boy’s toys would start an argument. I tried to ask for toys that weren’t made specifically for girls or boys, e.g. a Spirograph or Labyrinth. Toys I could play with by myself and still feel like a boy.

Jamie Ray was raised Jewish.  Her day of gifts was the day before Christian holiday of Christmas.  Find out why by reading Jamie's lovely post, I Never Believed in Santa Claus.
