Remember when the day after Thanksgiving didn’t mean Black Friday sales? Remember when the day after Thanksgiving meant waiting for Santa to arrive and the delight in lighting up Christmas? Santa would turn the key that lit up the tree and all the lights in the town square. Such anticipation. Listening to the radio or watching on the TV as they would announce how close Santa was? Sometimes he would show up in a sleigh if there was snow on the ground already, otherwise, he would arrive in a car. Arriving just in time for it to be dark enough and Santa would turn the key for the LIGHTS!
What is your story to tell? What is your child’s delight in the magic of Christmas?
