I live in a very small town of about 900 people, of which maybe 60 are 4th grade and under kids. Every year the Fire Dept buys them all presents, and the Ladies Aux, that I'm a member of, wraps and organizes the giveaway. This Sunday Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the Fire Barn giving out personalized gifts to all of those children. It is a wonderful tradition, it is so sweet to see the kids go from babies to terrified toddlers to brave little kids who walk right up to Santa and sit on his lap. Sometimes the older people on the island have some grandchildren visiting, and they call to say "Susie who is 5 will be here on Sunday', and we say great! We'll make sure she has a present. The etiquette issue here is that, year after year, people just show up! And they just get right in line, while we're all whispering to each other... Who is that? Are they on the list? Do we have a present for them? Then we run into the back to wrap one (we always have extras) while someone out front is distracting the kid from the fact that Santa has nothing for him (yet). I want to shake the parents and say ' you know that's not ACTUALLY Santa, right? Where the bleepy bleep do you think these presents come from!?!
