Santa at school

Early December, my school celebrated Christmas a bit early. All YCIS students were asked to buy and bring in wrapped toys, clothes and other things to give to a Chinese school students who don’t  have all the stuff we do. They put all these presents under the Christmas tree, outside the administration desk, at the main entrance to YCIS. There were so many presents.

This day, each class, one at time, came down to the tree and sang a few Christmas songs with some of the parents. Then Santa came out and gave each student a candy treat. All the parents were ladies, dressed in red. Guess who Santa was?

Santa was pretty tall and not Chinese. But too skinny. Wore dark glasses and when his beard fell off, a friend said “that Santa looks like Will’s dad. Now we knew who Santa was….My dad visited with all classes, preschool through Year5. I think he said it took about six hours and he said Santa was beat, needed to return to the North Pole for a holiday. And he said the Santa outfit was very hot. I think he did a pretty good job playing Santa.
