I Saw You: Saint Santa

In Music

I met Santa just before Christmas at the Dollar Tree in San Tomas Plaza on West Campbell Avenue. He’s tall, has a beard and wears a Boston cap and Pats/Brady jersey. I was behind him in line. This wonderful person paid it forward by paying for my (over $60!) purchase. I felt amazingly grateful and I explained why: My husband (who is 56 years old) was laid off on Dec. 12. We bought four new tires and our 8-year-old began orthodontia in November. Wish we had known no one in our house would have a job! Oh, Santa, we didn’t even buy a Christmas tree this year (they were kind of expensive). But I am going to make a Patriots ornament and write on it “Angel Santa” and hang it on our tree next year and every year after. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
