Christmas is a very special time, everything seems to be possible and the magic is everywhere. However sometimes life serves up some unexpected things and it is difficult to see magic even in all the excitement of the holidays. This year after the crazy elections magic seemed to be non-existent so for the last few weekends I have been overdosing on the Hallmark channel Christmas movies. I am sorry Hallmark channel producers and stars but your movies are really, really stupid. The only cool thing in all of them is that Santa Clause appears in a difficult time and magically makes all the wishes come true. I even been writing letters to Santa for the last couple of years but it seems like he did not get them.
Today my mom and I went to Malibu to visit the ocean and as we were driving back home listening to the Hamilton Mix Tape, which was magical, a red car drove next to us. When the lanes merged into one it picked up the speed and drove in front of us. The license plates were from Oregon with the pine tree in the middle, it read N Pole. “Look at the plates.” I told my mom. “The car is from Oregon so almost N Pole” “Why don’t you drive and see inside the car, maybe Santa Clause is driving it.” My mom laughed. I followed her advice and at the first chance drove along side the red car. To my dismay an old man driving it had a long wavy white beard long wavy hair and it was very real. “Mom I think it is Santa driving the car.” We both looked at each other in disbelieve. Than the red car drove right next to me and he opened the window and began to wave at us, his bright blue eyes sparkling. I slowed down and opened my window. “HoHoHo” he yelled and sent us an air kiss. We met a real Santa we were both sure of it. The magic was back in the air and anything was possible.
