The Messenger of Christmas Tidings!
Small chubby fingers
with heartbeat trotting full of expectation
Pushes treasured envelope of possibilities
through the mouth of Santa’s portal
Oh what surprises might await
beneath the Christmas tree
If only Rudolph
would come and see me!

Just a little bit of fun…I make up all kinds of crazy wild stories about how the Christmas list letters get to Santa.
This year I told my children that Santa has gone tres moderne and scans the letter, therefore no need to accumulate paper in his office. Said scanned letters go straight through to the Elves who have a tablet each. My youngest seemed to think that rather funny. It was more of a moment of manipulation on my part, as I have not the heart to throw the letters away, and as such store them somewhere ‘safe’. Trouble is I can never remember where said ‘safe’ place is and there brings a risk that little whee ones might indeed find treasured pen to paper in said ‘safe’ area.
It’s called covering my back!
Did you send off your Christmas list yet?
What did you wish for, for Christmas?
