April 30, 1997Of necessity, apparently, they were celebrating Christmas twice that year. Could Patsy have wanted to preserve the tradition of Christmas with Santa and the works? Hence, the "secret" visit? The Ramseys may not have wanted Jonbenet's friends to feel left out (or to set her straight about Santa) because they weren't getting a second visit. Seems Jonbenet may have "one upped" her friend and, in the process, let the cat out of the bag? I don't remember whether the BPD asked John and Patsy about that "secret" visit. I am assuming they did---does anyone remember their explanation?
TT: JonBenet got a letter from the secret Santa. Do you know who the secret Santa was?
PR: Ah, secret Santa. Where did she get the letter?
TT: Iâm not sure that she got the letter.
PR: In school or, they had a secret, I know a secret sister thing at the pageant in the summer time, but I donât remember it being any secret Santa.
TT: Any secret Santa that she talked about or anything like that?
PR: No. Burke had a little secret something at school around Christmas time, he had to bring a little gift for her, and kept getting it. But I donât remember any of this secret Santa.
TT: Did he do anything like that in school?
PR: Not that I remember.
TT: But Burke did have a secret Santa?
PR: Burke had a little secret. He was supposed to bring a little gift, I think, little finger gifts, and he forgot, you know. He had some little girl and he forgot about it until the last day. But I donât remember JonBenet having that.
