    I was about 5, and that Christmas Eve, my aunt had a neighbour dress up as Santa, and walk around on her roof. I looked out the living room window, and he waved to me. Best moment ever.

I was wondering if I could touch up the areas of white, cover up the red, so it doesn't show through. But I have no idea what kind of paint was used.
