monday morning question


I have two questions for you, because it is Christmas Eve!

1.  When you were a child, were you scared of the department store Santa, or did you run right up and sit on his lap?

2.  How old were you when you last sat on Santa's lap?

**Krissy's answers** 

1.  I was so scared of Santa that I ran in the opposite direction!

2.  The last time I sat on Santa's lap I was age 28 years old.  It was at a charity function Christmas party.  The children were all getting photos taken with Santa just for fun, and my friend Tanya and I decided to also. 

Now your turn to answer the question.  Answer in the comments section, or in your own journal/blog, and leave a link below, so we can check out your answer!  


  1. No, I was never scared of Santa.  The last time I sat on his lap I was about 7 years old, that was the Christmas I found out my Dad was putting the presents by my bed.  I never wanted to see Santa or sit on his knee again lol

    ROFL...I was terrified of Santa.  I wanted to run all the time but my mom made me sit on his lap.  My son was also extremely terrified of Santa.  And, of course, I made him get his picture taken every year with his sisters.  I was 14 and it was for a picture for charity at our church.  Love you, Chris

  3. my answers are over on my page....


  4. I don't remember being afraid of santa, but most children at a certain age get afraid of dressed up characters whether it be Mickey Mouse, the Easter Bunny or Santa.  I was once a Santa in a mall for Christmas.  One of my more memorable Christmas's.


  5. You know I really don't know for sure about number one.  I don't remember being scared of him.  As for number two, I sat on Santa's lap just the other night!  He told me to "get up, you're killing me and get me a bowl of ice cream."  ;o)  -  Barbara

    I can't ever remember going to see Santa as a child.  I'm sure I must have done so though.

  7.     I remember as a child, first enjoying Santa's presense, and then being terrified of him, and then again, plying his ears with tons from my wish list. I think I was possibly ten the last time I sat on Santa's lap. I have a friend, though, whose boys are 23 and 24. The only thing she has ever accepted from them is a new photo of them with Santa. I haven't the heart to tell her how creepy that sounds now with them at this age.

    A very merry Christmas to you and yours.

  8. I'm pretty sure my mother and father didn't take me to see Santa!  Or at least I'm so old now I don't remember.  LOL

    I do remember the last time I sat on Santa's lap.  I was 48 years old!  And he was so cute.  ;)

  9. I grew up in the country so there were no department stores or santas but I did sit on his lap as a senior citizen a few years ago. Paula

  10. Krissy, I don't think I ever sat on Santa's lap.  I grew up in a town of 900 and there were no department stores, Santa was in our books and dreams.  We did go to Minneapolis, MN to shop, but I don't think Santa was there when we went.
    Sorry to be such a dud on this question!

    Hey I love your picture, Btw!! You're lookin' real good girl!  Way to go!!
    Love, Merry
