Ever since I was little I was taught how Santa would be watching all year round to see if I was being good or bad, this would determine if I would get any presents or not. Of course I was a little demon most of the year but come the month of December I was an angel just so I didn’t get that lump of coal.
As the years went by and I was older Christmas was less exciting and the presents got less from family and friends, sure we had the decorations and ate a big meal on the day its self but the meaning just lost it’s appeal.
That was until I had kids and it bolted my Christmas joy again, I was having to buy presents for my own children and make sure they feel the magic of December and knowing that you are getting ready to be on your way, on Christmas Eve we track you on the SantaNav and see where you are in the world delivering to all the boys and girls.
My Children have all wrote to you and asked for what they want from Santa this year and I’m pretty impressed that it’s not to expensive but I want to ask you for a Christmas wish personally.
Cheryl has had the year from hell and everything thrown at her with bad health to me and the kids ending up in hospital and in the space of just a few months she lost her mom the whole reason she loves Christmas and also our relationship ended.
My wish is to give her the strength to get through this year, through Christmas and New Year so she can start fresh and start to rebuild her life again, she has lost her Christmas spirit this year but if anyone can get it back its Santa.
