Kids love everything related to Santa during the month of December! This is a fantastic list of Santa activities for kids that the whole family will enjoy.
Growing up, on Christmas Eve I used to try and convince anyone who would listen that the little red light from the radio tower was really Rudolph’s red nose moving through time. I could see it from my bedroom window, and I would stand there for hours during December making up Santa stories in my head.
In fact, I pretended to believe in Santa long after I knew in my heart he wasn’t real. As a child, Santa made Christmas magical and fun.
