8. When and how did you learn the
truth about Santa?
What do you mean the truth? J/K...
I knew he probably wasn't real around
10 or 11, however I held on and chose

would always tease us, "If you don't
believe in Santa, he won't come"
I didn't dare share my doubts with her! lol

Christmas. She calls it our 12days

14. What’s the most important
thing about the holidays for you?

those things... Oh yeah and the ham! =)
