I love every little thing about the holiday season. I love the shopping and the decorating and the baking and the hosting and the sheer sparkle of excitement I see in my kids’ eyes every time a new decoration goes up or there’s even the smallest mention of Christmas. One of my favorite parts of the holiday is when my kids would write their letter to Santa.
My kids are starting to get a little older now and while I’m not sure if they all still believe in Santa, I still do so I still make them sit down and write their letters to Santa. After all, how is Santa or I supposed to know what they want if they don’t write it down?
Not only is it something fun to do, even if they don’t really believe it’s just a little part of that Christmas magic that I’m holding on to for as long as I can. I also think that deep down they still like to do it too.
Writing letters can be stressful though, because sometimes the kids can’t make up their minds and don’t know what to ask for, and sometimes kids change their minds and worry that Santa won’t know they’ve changed their minds, but for the most part writing a letter to Santa is a fun thing for kids to do.
