The Special Santa Tradition

Is there anything more wonderful than a child at Christmas? Okay a GRANDchild at Christmas is a real gift!
Every year Helena goes to visit the Santa at our local shopping center. He is always the same nice old man with the same real beard and Helena has liked him since she was a baby. When she was less than a year old she was running away from us to get back to Santa!
This year, Helena wasn't interested in telling Santa about what toys she would like. She just loved seeing him again. He is an old friend she sees once a year and she told him about her animals and how she was doing. I shall miss it if the good ol' Santa ever leaves our little community shopping center and miss it more when Helena is reluctant to see Santa. But for today, we have had a one perfect day again.
