From buckets of ashes to intolerable itches, these are the moments that shaped our Holidays and our character. From the NBC Philadelphia family to you and yours, "Happy Holidays!" Oh, and fair warning: We do talk about a few "Santa" memories that you probably don't want the kids to see!
My step-dad used to really go out of his way to make it appear that Santa truly came to our house.
He used to leave a black boot mark on the floor and the fire place had strands of cotton that appeared to be his beard.
I was always so amazed that Santa actually came -- and to see the "proof" was even more magical.
