The Christmas magic is real
The magic of Christmas has enveloped me. Last night we went driving around town looking at the Christmas lights. I was taken back to my days as a child as my eyes danced in the twinkling of each bulb. We saw really cute penguins, elves, reindeer, and moose. We also saw some very unique decor with Santa as a hockey player complete with a Maple Leaf jersey, Santa on a camouflage motor bike, and the one that made me tear up a beautiful white lighted Eiffel Tower. Then the chorus of questions poured in like a hot cup of insatiable curiosity. I then remembered all my inquisitive questions that I bombarded my Mom with every year. From my precious preschooler:
“Will Santa bring me my Bat Cave?”
“Does Santa like cookies or muffins?”
“Will he wake me up when he gets here so we can play with his reindeer?”
From my wise but vulnerable to the truth, elementary school student:
“How will Santa come to our house if we don’t have a chimney?”
“How will he walk through the front door and not set off the alarm?”
And the last one I’m hearing more and more this year…
“Is Santa really real-or is just you and Dad?”
I think back to what my Mom said all those years ago and it’s the same thing that I’ve told my oldest son.

Got to keep that cat in the bag as long as possible…!
Amen I was 10 the day the magic died and I kick myself saying I should’ve kept my big mouth shut. ?
I have no idea myself but I expect it was about then.
It’s all part of the magic so I am happy to indulge still and forget that it isn’t all true…..
Absolutely it makes the world a sweeter place to believe that magic exists awhile longer. ?Happy Christmas to you. ??

When my boys were 6 and 4, I dressed up as Santa that Christmas and their mother woke them up to see ‘Santa in action.’ They were still half asleep so our little trick worked. They know the truth now though. Happy Christmas Jeanine.
Awe Mike what a beautiful memory to share with your son’s! I love that so much, my in-laws did something similar when my oldest son was one. I love those Christmas memories to cherish. Thank you for sharing that I got all misty about it. Happy Christmas season to you. ???
Aw thanks, Jeanine. I wonder if they still remember it. I’m seeing my eldest on Wednesday, I’ll have to ask him.
You’re welcome I think that’s a beautiful gift to remember. ?
