I don’t remember it having this effect on me.
My wife is the only person who remembers it.
But my son was the one who was totally in awe of the whole thing.
He would watch the Christmas lights and the decorations, and he would say, ‘Mommy, it looks like Santa Claus is here.’
And I would say that, ‘No, he is.’
And he would be like, ‘I can’t believe Santa Claus did that.’
But I would be there with my son, and I would just stand there.
That was the whole Christmas thing, and it was such a fun, wonderful time, and there was so much that was so special about it.
We got married last year and my wife and I are having a little celebration, and we’re going to put up a tree.
We’re going down to the lake and I have my daughter with me, and she’s wearing her little blue dress, and everyone is just walking by and they’re all looking at it.
So we’ve got this big tree, and the kids are all standing there, and they just keep going, ‘Oh my God, it’s Christmas.
Why are we having a tree?’
I said, ‘Well, my kids were looking at that for ages, and so they’re really looking forward to it, and then when I got to the door, they were like, “Oh my god, I can’t wait to go down and see Santa Claus.”
I was like, [smiles] Yeah, that was a great Christmas.
I mean, we’re getting married next week, and Christmas is a family celebration, so it’s just a nice little thing that we do together.
I think it was a big blessing to have a Christmas tree, because it’s a big thing.
