Before we knew the truth about Christmas, this time of year was magical because of Santa – the magic of Santa.
With the magic comes a little pause for reflection.
Have I been naughty – or nice – this year?
Will Santa bring lots of toys for all the girls and boys?
We’ll fill them full of candy and treats, then send them off to bed.
Sleep doesn’t come easy with visions of sugar plums dancing in their head – or listening for Santa’s sleigh bells instead.
Each place is set with a different plate stack, except for Santa’s Magical Cookies, of course. Just for fun. Here we go – ring around the table. Green, red, and gold.
A little square dimension, with a textured branch edge, to match the aged Burlap Charger.
Santa over red, and then there’s a hint of where each child will be on Christmas Eve – inside a decorated house, snuggled in their bed, no doubt.
And, finally, Santa on Tartan.
Flatware dresses each place for Christmas, too.
Patricia Neely-Dorsey has the perfect poem for today’s table.
Yes, it’s the child-like magic of Christmas.
Gifts and toys await on Christmas morn.
Now that we know the truth about Christmas, it’s the miracle of Jesus that brings magic – our Savior born.
What about you? Are you focused on Him this Christmas season? Yes, He is the reason for our Christmas magic.
