They have this tradition out here in Eagle Mountain called Santa on a firetruck. Cute idea, right? I always thought it was, but then it happened. They tell you on the flyer that it's from 8am till done. What does that mean? Well, the first year we were here it came at 8:04am and we missed it, the kids were sad and I felt bad. The next year they came around 9am so we saw that. This year, the kids waited all morning and didn't want to go to the store cause they were waiting for "Santa" . When Santa finally came, around 11:30am, the firetruck was practically speeding through our neighborhood. Santa didn't even wave at the kids, he just threw some candy and sped away. Is this tradition getting better or worse as the years go on? You tell me. My Mother-in-law told me her son waited 4 hours outside for Santa. It was cold that day!
What a way to start the holiday's, don't you think?
