When you’re a kid there’s no other feeling like the excitement of Christmas morning… Waking up early, dressed in new comfy PJs (see previous tip of the week), and seeing gifts under the tree. There was a sense of wonder and excitement when we saw resents wrapped in this certain paper. My sister and I knew that was SANTA’S wrapping paper. My parents always acted surprised when we opened these gifts and this tradition went on long after we were old enough to know the truth. My mom explained to me and my sister, that Santa had special wrapping paper made for every family and while the paper has changed at this point we still always gets little something from Santa.
Now with a family of my own, I am looking forward to keeping the idea of Santa’s wrapping paper alive. I also realize that my mom must have planned this years in advance! My mom bought multiple rolls of the same wrapping paper and hid it in the back of her closet for years.
