My boyfriend thinks Santa Claus is a pedophile...and that no kid should sit on his lap.
Now this makes me sad because I remember a fond moment of visiting Santa for the first time when I was 6 years old. I thought it was an amazing, magical moment! It was a the Village Bookshop in Glendora, CA. I still have a few of the Polaroid snapshots of this visit. I had a bowl haircut and was full of shy insecurity.
I'm sharing this because I'd like to think that I would allow my own child, (if and when), the same opportunity for childhood joy!
Beyond that, I remember one of the best Christmases when Santa really seemed to "visit" my residence. It was so amazing to me because I was old enough to really understand the magic... I mean, I thought all was lost this particular year. There were a few gifts under the tree when I went to sleep. When I woke that morning, it's as if the tree exploded! I was just amazed by the sights in my living room. It seemed that there really was a Santa Claus that came down and awarded me with all this cool stuff! I was 12...or maybe 11, regardless, I still believed in Santa. The sadness in my heart is that no one really tries to invoke this feeling in my life anymore.
I want magic for my child. My boyfriend is Russian...what does he know about magic! :)
