Santa is on the way, and my kids are so excited. Ever since Thanksgiving ended and we opened the first Christmas decoration box, it’s “Santa this” and “Santa that.” Then, my kids received their Package from Santa, and it’s like the whole season is ready to truly begin.
The package arrives in a really cool envelope that appears extremely official. The return address is the North Pole, and my 7-year-old was very careful about reading the information to his little brother and sister.
Inside, the kids were treated to a letter from Santa, a certificate of being on the Nice List, a picture of Santa and one of his elves, and a flight plan for Santa’s big night on Christmas Eve.
When I set up the package’s arrival, I had really fun options I could choose from. I could have chosen that my kids receive a standard template letter, but I opted to write my own. Because I wanted to incorporate both the fun of Santa and Christmas with the true meaning of the birth of Jesus, I wrote my own letter that would encourage my littles to remember why we’re having this holiday in the first place.
My kids were excited although a bit confused. How could Santa have already sent them a letter when it wasn’t even December? That led to a fun discussion between the three of them. The 7-year-old with his voice of reason and logic said, "Santa is magic, guys!"
