A Christmas Peak

“Christmas 2009. We went to the mall to take a picture with Santa and seemingly nothing went wrong… my son didn’t cry, the line was manageable but Santa’s attention was focused elsewhere.”

Christmas With Befana

“One year old me, Santa in furry slippers and the most disturbing and scary Befana ever. Italy, 1996 (In Italy the Befana is supposed to be an old, kind woman who deliver gifts to kids on Epiphany eve).”

56 Problems

“Me (left), my cousin and my sister got identical jogging suites and fanny packs from our grandmother for Christmas 1991. We already had identical hair cuts. My cousin is forcing my sister to smile by pinching my sister’s hand.”

Santa Lucia

“When I was a little girl in 1976, my mom had me dress up for my school’s Christmas heritage parade. She told me about Santa Lucia, how she was a Swedish saint and then she dressed me as her complete with lit candles on my head. I just read about Santa Lucia and learned she isn’t Swedish, she’s Italian. My mom nearly set me on fire for a heritage that is not mine.”
