To be honest I wanted to tell the “truth” to my daughter this year, but when she saw all the Christmas decorations appearing all around she decided to write him a letter. She was thinking for a few days about what to write to him. She changed her mind a few times, but finally she got her letter ready.
So this year number one on her wish list is… a sewing machine! I was a bit surprised I must say, but I guess it is because she enjoyed watching me and helping a bit when I was making her Christmas apron.
So when she finished her letter, she wanted to post it on her own. She has already seen a Santa’s mailbox in a shopping center, so we needed to go there again to have her letter sent. And then, there he was! Santa Claus! He came to talk to us, asked what she wrote in her letter, said he would read it and gave her a candy. So how to tell her now this is not exactly a real Santa?!? If you have an advice for me, I would love to hear it – leave it in a comment.
