7. Favorite holiday memory as a child?
Spending x-mas eve with paternal side of family, then driving in middle of night 4 hours to see maternal side of family. We would listen to the Santa sightings on the way and when we got there my grandparents would cover our eyes and walk us to bed so that we didn't see what was under the tree. :-)

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
What truth? Are you talking about the rumor that Santa isn't real? They say that about the Tooth Fairy too, but we know they are both real!
