I come from a different country with different traditions so we didn't have tooth fairy or Easter bunny, or even Santa. Well, we had an old man dressed up like Santa. We didn't call him Santa but the same as ''Grandpa'', who symbolized the year that we were leaving behind. We knew that he was just an old man. Also next to the old man was always a little kid (boy or girl) dressed up the same, symbolizing the new year.
