Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 89 People

    It Was Only One Year

    I had just been told at a very young age the truth about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, too. I found a bag in one of the closets that was full of [as yet] unwrapped Christmas presents. I started looking inside boxes. I had only managed a couple of these when Mom came in and...

     I used to always peek, I could sniff out the hardest to find hiding places. But by the time I got to be ten or eleven, I realised it was much more fun to actually be surprised than to have to act surprised.....

    A Long Time Ago

    I would sneak into the family room where the christmas gifts were. I would take a gift and peel off some of the wrapping that was directed towards the tree. That way, if someone was looking at the gifts, they wouldn't be able to see the paper was torn. I figured if I peeled back...
