For many years this family of Santas provided a great topic of conversation for guests who were eager to see what the new Santa would be. As time passed, so did my interest in just a little too many Christmas decorations. These Santas now lie in my storage room lonely, covered in dust, and reminiscing about better times. Perhaps they will become the illustrations for Christmas stories for my granddaughters.
The Santas that still hold a special place in my heart, and get displayed on my tree each year, are the small ornamental ones. No material was sacred: slate, driftwood, balsa wood, cinnamon sticks, light bulbs etc. . Today they all sit proudly next to glittery balls, sparkly stars and other finery. It is never the glitz that people admire on my tree; it is always my Santas. So much for sparkle.
