When our girls asked me outright if Santa was real I thought it was the beginning of the end of the Christmas magic, but I was wrong.
Working out that Santa was not a ‘real person’ did nothing to dampen my girl’s excitement about Christmas. Now they were a part of creating that excitement for their little brothers and if anything, it has made Christmas even more magical.
The girls have embraced the creation of Christmas magic to the extreme, and it’s been lovely to have their help and enthusiasm when I am flagging, and even better to watch them carefully crafting magic and memories for their brothers.
This week they helped me make a new ‘Letter to Santa’ printable and then they helped their smallest brother to write a letter to Santa.
They patiently helped him spell tricky words, and reminded him to say thank you for last year’s presents. They concocted a magical story about how the letter would make it all the way to the North Pole and how Santa would manage to read all the many, many, letters he must get. They even wrote their own letters to Santa so Noah would know it was ‘really real’.
They worked happily and quietly together for half an hour, and if that is not Christmas magic, then I don’t know what is!
