I am…a secret Santa
Last night was my first holiday party. This company has been doing secret Santa for years. This year they lost the slip with the name of person I was to be a Santa for. The office admin had to ask everyone who they were secret Santa for. Result not so secret but still fun. Spending limit is $50. Oh and then there is dinner at Town in San Carlos. We start with appetizers and drinks. I have my annual pomegranate martini. Once everyone has arrived we toast the holidays and then sit to eat soup or salad, main course and dessert. The food was delicious. I especially enjoyed the thin onion rings on my skirt steak. All the eating done and the fun begin as we start exchanging Secret Santa gifts. The picture is me in my secret Santa gift of a new hat.
Quotes on Santa:
•“Whenever you give someone a present or sing a holiday song, you’re helping Santa Claus. To me, that’s what Christmas is all about. Helping Santa Claus!” – Louis Sachar
•“I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph. – Shirley Temple Black
•Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows; who shares his joys with those who are sad; whose hand is never closed against the needy; whose arm is ever outstretched to aid the weak; whose sympathy is quick and genuine in time of trouble; who recognizes a comrade and brother in every man he meets upon life’s common road; who lives his life throughout the entire year in the Christmas spirit. – Edwin Osgood Grover
