     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.....

    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...
