Not really the Xmas holidays- but its about other holidays
St Patricks day- I used to set a trap over my closet door. I attatched a string to a box and then put some gum underneath it (don't ask me why I used gum) In the morning I checked it and my mom had put a little metal spring underneath it. She had also half opened the gum and taken little tiny bites out of it. I was SO convinced that there was a leprechaun in my house.
Another St PAtty's day- I was at my best friends house and we decided to make a little trap at her house too. She had a pillow with a pocket on it so we put gum in it (again, NO idea where the idea of using gum came from) When we came back we thought someone had atken bites out of the gum, but in reality, we put a half peice of gum in there to start out with. We also found a ton of *this is a little gross* toenails everywhere on her ground.. (EWW) but we thought they were from the leprechauns..
Easter- I used to search around the living room to look for bunny prints and I found some once! the fibers of the carpet were just pushed around in some weird way, but I called out to my mom saying the easter bunny had been here!!! But then I found a reciept next to my basket with all of the candy on it..
