“On a busy day twenty-two thousand people come to visit Santa, and I was told that it is an elf’s lot to remain merry in the face of torment and adversity. I promised to keep that in mind.” ― David Sedaris

What do you do when you are a youngster and your first visit to Santa Claus turns out to be a total dud and less than you expected? You try again next year and hope for the best.
This is what little Evie ( my blog partner Susan’s granddaughter ) discovered this year on her recent visit to Santa Claus.
The exuberant smile on her face and her enjoyable visit with the old gentleman with the long white beard was a major improvement over last year’s disaster.
I reported last year that the spirit of Christmas was not really instilled into the person portraying Father Christmas. The man lacked any rapport with children and at the time it seemed he was uncomfortable with the visit.
One year later the smile on Evie’s face was definite proof that this man was a close kin to the person we lovingly call Santa Claus. – gc
