The other day, I was walking through the Sandusky Mall with my mom, dad, and Mike, and Santa Claus waved at me. Immediately, I got all misty-eyed and I can’t figure out why.
It’s not because I am afraid of him. I’ve never been afraid of him. I love Santa. The more I thought about it, the more I believe it is because he ignites in me a Christmas spirit that only children can feel, and excitement that has been sucked out of us adults. I cried because I’m sad that I am no longer allowed to lose myself in Christmas magic.
Santa waved at me, and my heart started racing and my eyes got misty and I wanted more than anything to go back to the times when I believed in Santa. Christmas IS exciting. Christmas SHOULD make it hard for you to sleep on Christmas Eve. There really is still a magic about Christmas. I hope that this year, we all let ourselves realize that.
