Every year, for as long as I can remember, we had a Santa pinata on Christmas eve. My mom would paint the face and us kids would help curl strips of paper for the beard. On Christmas Eve, we would take turns, youngest to oldest, hitting the pinata full of candy and one present each from Santa. I've desperately wanted to continue this tradition with my kids but I seriously lack the skills of painting Santa. One year I tried and am still teased about my Santa who looked like Osama bin Laden. Another year I just used a Raley's bag that was already covered in reindeer, better than nothing, right? So this year, when I found this Santa from my mom in the mail, I almost cried! The tradition lives on!!

"Let us remember, too, that greatness is not always a matter of the scale of one’s life, but of the quality of one’s life. True greatness is not always tied to the scope of our tasks, but to the quality of how we carry out our tasks whatever they are. In that attitude, let us give our time, ourselves, and our talents to the things that really matter now, things which will still matter a thousand years from now." --Spencer W. Kimball, "A Gift of Gratitude", Tambuli, Dec 1977
