Childhood memories

I am sure as we all think back we have some type of memories of Christmas growing up.Family traditions,games we played ,food we ate the list could go on.
I remember as a child ( guess my memories is good if I can remember that long ago) of how my dad loved to tease my sisters and me.Every year at Christmas time he would always tell us that he was going to shoot Santa this year. OK I admit I was not real small but dad enjoyed having Santa come.Soon after my sisters and I would go to bed he would stand by the stairs and loudly do a Santa Ho HO HO!!!! Followed quickly by a bang! My sisters and I would all be yelling daaaad!!!!!!!!!!! Now I must admit that we were a little to old for Santa to visit ,but as long as dad enjoyed it who was to complain.
Did I mention how i used to watch out my bedroom window and see him carry in the gifts from the trunk of the car?????
I tag you to share your favorite Christmas memories.
