Lunch With Santa 2019

I enjoyed being a part of the festivities with all the youngsters at the Annual “Lunch with Santa” event at Buckingham Springs.  It’s always fun for me, since this is the best age group for sharing my books… Grandparents and parents who wish to participate bring a gift with their child’s name on it and leave it at the office the day before the event.  When everyone arrives at the event, they have lunch and sing songs until the magic moment when Santa appears, ringing his bell and shouting “Ho-Ho-Ho”… The children cheer –  and then line up to visit Santa and receive their designated gift!  Very festive and happy occasion!!!

Christmas Gifts of Love

Give your loved ones some poetry of loveLove was born at Christmas!

The Spirit of Christmas

Santa’s the spirit of Christmas,

The longing to give in your heart,

The wanting to make others happy,

As God gave us love at the start.


For God’s love was born at Christmas,

All wrapped in a small holy Boy.

So we want to give on His birthday,

To share all our love and our joy.


You’re never too old to love Santa,

Just open your heart and believe…

That Santa brings gifts for Christ’s birthday,

And it’s better to give than receive.
