|Tom Smith became and annual visitor as Santa Claus|
Christmases 1967 and 1968 we lived in Carbondale, Illimpos, returning to Hyrum for 1969, when I was in the seventh grade.
We had one tradition of being allowed to open on gift from under the tree on Christmas Eve. It was terrible when you chose clothing or something Christmas Eve. We were looking for toys or games. Santa left most of our toys out unwrapped, so we could see what he had brought early in the morning before our parents had gotten up.
