I put a stamp on it and we placed it in the mailbox. I didn’t think of it again. Until today.
Bob brings the mail in and there is a little card addressed to Anthony! It reads:
My Dear Little Friend,
Your letter arrived, to my delight. I read each word by candlelight. The elves are busy, what more can I say! They have so much fun on our magical day. I love sharing the secret of Christmas to be, with all my precious wonders; you are so dear to me.
You are so special in your own special way, like no other on Earth, I am pleased to say. Be healthy, be happy, and keep wearing a smile, Christmas will be here in a very short while! And here is a special wish I send, Peace on Earth, Good will to men!
It was hand addressed and had a little “Have a merry Christmas” hand written out.
I can not describe Anthony’s face when he received his letter from Santa. I don’t know how Anthony was chosen to receive this letter, but it totally made his day. Year even!
I love Christmas!
