Advent Calendar Christmas Gifts

Christmas Gifts were either from Santa Claus or from our parents. The presents from Santa were small, miscellaneous gifts with the larger presents from our parents. That way we knew it was a question of whether our parents could afford a present rather than whether Santa could or couldn't bring us what we wanted.
I remember the year I learned the secret about Santa - I had discovered some presents in my parents' room and told my younger brother. He decided to dob me in and told my mum I had been snooping. Mum told me I had spoiled the secret, but in actual fact it had never occurred to me that finding the gifts meant Santa was a fantasy. Perhaps I would have realised on Christmas morning!
