The magic of Christmas….
As a child there is the special magic of Christmas, the lights, the presents and Santa. Just listen to a young child at this time of year, the excitement and wonder in their voices. Just the other night at the Waxhaw Christmas event I passed a girl of four or five years old. She was telling her father of her experience of meeting Santa, “I sat on his lap and he is REAL!” I just smiled to myself. As a parent of older children, 19, 16, 14 and 11, they no longer experience this magic. I so miss those days of wonderment, excitement and anticipation of the children. (remember listening to the NORAD as to the location of Santa, and getting the kids to bed, maybe not asleep; but at least in bed!)
But the magic isn’t gone, it is now celebrated along with the spirit of Christmas.
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
