We have stopped elaborate Santa routineWe passed a somewhat sad milestone in the Clark household this year. It was the first Christmas since having children we didn’t place special gifts under the tree we pretended were from Santa Claus.As many parents know, this whole Santa routine can be quite an ordeal if you’re really looking to give the performance some flair. For starters, there’s special wrapping paper you have to buy – and keep concealed in the most remote closet in the house – because it would be awfully suspicious if Santa delivered a gift in the exact same wrapping paper used by mom and dad.You also have to be careful to disguise your handwriting when signing the label because that too would look a little fishy if Santa’s penmanship was exactly the same as mom’s.
