My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
You know, I think I'm going to talk to my mom about this one. It's been a rule in our house that if you still believe, he'll still bring gifts. My 15 and 17 year old siblings still believe and I obviously still believe. I'm going to have to investigate to find out if that's the only stipulation.
I don't mind if he only brings me one thing. I just want to open something that reads "From Santa."

Santa is real! He visits me every year and leaves gifts and I am in my early 40's. We always have gifts from Santa! A few years ago me and my grown daughter went to the mall to get our pic taken with him as well.

I agree with Snowfall...If you still believe you should get a gift or two from the Big Guy.. My fiance is really good about making sure there is at least one gift under the tree for me from "SANTA"... And now we have a new baby boy so im sure he will be leaving alot more gifts for many years to come

I'm 24 and Santa still visits! I've been living on my own and nine hours away from home for about four years now and there are always multiple gifts from Santa underneath the tree. It definitely adds to the mystique and magic of the holiday season. I never want Santa to stop.

Im 19 and still put out my sack and stocking on christmas eve, i know its my mum that fills them but i think its just the excitement on coming down stairs on christmas morning and seeing them filled.
I have 1 and 3 year old next door neighbours so this christmas will be brilliant ans the 3 year old will be getting excited about a visit from santa so it'll remind me of when I was younger and got excited about it.
I think as long as I'm still living with my mum or have children of my own, I'm always going to believe nothing wrong with abit of beliving

Yes! I'm 36 and Santa still visits me. When I was in college and would come home over Christmas break, my mom still wouldn't put the presents out until I was asleep!! So much fun! Now that I'm married, have my own family and live about 1 1/2 hours away from my parents, we still don't bring the presents out until everyone is there and then we set them all in individual piles. the living room is always busting at the seams!!
