I found out in the 3rd grade. That year, I started at a new school. As Christmas approached one of my classmates told me all about the myth. I could not believe it! While on school break for the holiday, my mother sent me to get something out of her car. She did not realize that I would open the trunk of the car. Wow, it was loaded with gifts! I was so disappointed. My favorite part of Christmas was always my stuffed stocking. My parents comforted me by letting me know that I would still get my stocking. Even now, all these years later, I love my stuffed stocking.
