This is my fave thread at the mo'...
my earliest memory is embaressing and I know I'm going to be laughed at...
I'm about 5 months old, I'm living in an old railway carriage outside of town that my dad has remodelled into a home for my mum/ family.
It's Christmas, I awake in my cot a few mtrs from my sleeping parents.
I hear the jingle-jangle of sweet bells then a tapping on the roof...
As I gaze between the bars of my crib a form in sepia-shades fading in and out appears at the end of the carriage and approaches the doorway to my/
It is indistinct yet has a red/ black and white coloration...it is a humanesque figure, with a large frame and black boots.
It's Santa Claus,
I have never told anyone about this but this memory has been with me and it wasn't until I was old enough to buy the marketing hype that I realised
the vision was what it was...
I have told my closest friend and my mother of this memory and have been ridiculed.
I don't how/who it is or what it is.
For a long time as a child I hotly remonstrated that Santa existed because of this memory.
Now that I am older I just wonder what went wrong
Anyway, thanks for the thread.
This is the internet, I don't care what people think
