Santa Wore Chuck Taylor's

I want to thank the Lawn Whisperer for guest blogging for me for the past week. Lauren, Max, Luna the dog and I traveled to Pennsylvania for the holidays. So this is a post from PA.

Did you know that between 1976 and 1980 Santa Clause wore Chuck Taylor's Converse All-Star sneakers? I swear this is true because during those years, when I woke up and ran downstairs on Christmas morning, there were always white footprints going from the tree to front door, that had the exact same tread as Chucks.

I knew this because my dad had two pairs of Chuck Taylor's Converese All-Star Hightops. A black pair and a white pair so I knew those diamond shaped soles anywhere. I always thought it was cool that Santa and my dad wore the same type of shoe.

I never could figure out why the footprints always looked like flour, but I guess it was the magic of Santa.

*heh heh* That just meant Santa was almost as cool as your dad.

Happy Christmas to you and your zany, wonderful family, William!

Merry Christmas to you are yours! Have a wonderful holiday with your family....

I love the magic of Christmas and I love it more now that we get to do the same traditions with our kids.

DANG! You just reminded me that I wanted to make some kind of blackish footprint by the fireplace. Crap. Maybe I still have time.

Santa used to leave talcum powder footprints at our house, until my daughter decided that they smelt nice, so we swapped to corn flour. These days he leaves water puddles .... melted snow footprints!! She is 11 and still believes. It's wonderful that the magic is still around.
Merry Christmas, take care :-)

I refuse to respond to this post for fear of showing my age (or lack thereof).
