on this blog for many years. This years "sleeping santa" has a special meaning to me as it was a gift to my mom from me and my brother over 50 years ago. We bought the santa at a downtown department store with our saved allowance money, probably for about a dollar.
Mom is now gone, and recently so too has my brother left this world.
Christmas is a holiday that is steeped in nostalgia and this little decoration surely is a good example.
