Ho Ho Ho

My uncle Jimmy always played Santa Claus for all the kids in the family when we were little and he was the best at it! Year after year, he showed up in his red suit and with his booming voice, called Ho Ho Ho for everyone to hear. Not only did he delight all of us by sitting us on his knee and asking what we wanted for Christmas, he often brought little wrapped toys with him just to be sure we all got something. I have to mention the time that I figured out that uncle Jimmy was Santa (I was in Kindergarten ) and decided Id pull off his beard to let him know I was privy to what was going on. Needless to say, there were some surprised little kids sitting there staring that night and lots of angry parents, Im sure. Its just one of the many good memories of uncle Jimmy that makes a funny story now.
