My Santa collection started small.
Before I married, I had a collection of three.
That was 47 years ago, and my husband and other family and friends have added to the collection, and it has gotten out of control!
My mother and my mother-in-law had a few Santas, which I inherited.
Okay, I'll admit I've bought a few special Santa figures for myself over the last 47 years.
But it's been a long time since I bought one. The thought of finding some place to display it during Christmas and to put it up after Christmas stops any thought of adding to the collection.
I even have a Santa bucket to hold my lamp.
Have you ever seen such an out-of-control collection?
I do enjoy seeing each of them when I get them out for the holidays, but, as we all know, putting them back up is not fun.
The stockings are hung below the Santas. He can admire all the images of himself as he fills our stockings. We have a bag of reindeer feed to fuel his transportation.
And, of course, cookies and milk for Santa. Is it obvious we're trying to get on his good side?
Thank you for coming to see my excess of Santas. Ho-Ho-Ho. Merry Christmas!
