The Story Of Santa

When I was younger I was told Santa was real. Santa had a naughty list and a nice list and you had to have good behavior the whole year or you would be on the naughty list. If you got on the naughty list you wouldn't get any presents from Santa. Santa came every year and that was on December 24th. My parents always told me you have to be in bed at 8pm or Santa is not going to come because he doesn't come to see kids that are awake. What did your parents tell you about Santa and what time did you have to go to bed if you had to go to bed by a certain time? Every December 24th I would always take my bath and eat dinner early and make Santa cookies and put a glass of milk on the table so I was in bed at 8pm or before that. I would also leave him a note so he would write back to me. When I got to be around 11 or 12 years old I found out Santa wasn't real. I found out when I fell asleep on the couch one Christmas night and I woke up in the middle of the night and I saw my parents putting all the presents under the tree and then that next year I got to help my mom wrap the presents for my sister.
