Our public library every year has this small event, the kids get to come to the library in their pajamas and meet Santa. This was T’s first year going cause before he wouldn’t sit still. We got there like 30 minutes early, so we could get a parking spot, since they are limited. As it got closer to 7pm more and more people came in with their children, I couldn’t believe how many kids were there!
The event only lasted 1 hour, but it started off with a short film named “what is Christmas”, it was interesting and surprisinly T sat still during the whole thing. After the film, the librarian got the bells and starting ringing them to see if Santa would come out. Next thing, you hear is Santa ringing bells too and walking to the children. It was pretty awesome, the reactions on all the kids, and the reaction on T’s face was amazing. Me and D thought that our son was going to be like the scene in the movie “Elf” when buddy goes “SANTA….OH MY GOD!”, but no he didn’t. After Santa came out and said hi to all the kids, they did a few songs and then he read a story to the kids, “T’was the night before Christmas”. After all that, the kids got to go sit on Santa’s lap and tell them what they want for Christmas. It was cute seeing some of the younger ones, once they got on Santa’s lap they would cry, it reminded me of T when he was that age, and then I re-thought, man I didn’t miss that part lol, but its still cute.
When it was T’s turn, he had no problem and was excited to tell Santa what he wanted. We figured he would tell Santa like 1 or 2 things, but nope, he just kept going on and on with what he wanted, thankfully Santa was good about it and thought it was funny that T kept going on with what he wanted. We were glad T was wanting to see Santa and tell him what he wants, because there are kids in his class that have told him that Santa isn’t real. We’ve been telling him the whole time that he is real, but with this event, he knew Santa WAS REAL. I just couldn’t believe that kids in kindergarten are telling him that Santa isn’t real, like what kind of parents do these kids have?! I am glad T believe’s in Santa, he tells the kids, that if they don’t believe they don’t have the Christmas spirit.
