One of the things that immediately endeared me to this neighborhood is Santa's habit of stopping by our house around Christmas Eve, in a propane-driven sleigh, playing Christmas carols and handing out candy canes to all the kids in the neighborhood. I'm curious to know how far his range extends. Did you get a visit from Santa tonight?
This year, we got an extra treat--a ride around the block in the sleigh. I hear one of our neighbors arranges this special visit every year, and he's careful to make sure that no house with young children is left out of Santa's rounds.
Of course, my camera was not with me today to catch this moment, but we look forward to it so much every year I forgot I had water boiling on the stove and had to jump out of the sleigh halfway around the block and run back to the house.
