Holiday Adventure in the Enchanted Forest’
Taken from Santa’s sled
Hello from Jimmy
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.*
As night fell over the Enchanted Forest, and we were near the eve of Christmas, Jimmy had one last adventure before heading back home. Apparently while Jimmy was dining at the Mulberry Inn near Snowflake Lake, Santa Claus actually stopped by for a hot cup of cocoa and a bite of cranberry and molasses bread which he then shared with his reindeers.
It was not everyday Jimmy saw Santa, and after chatting with him about the long night ahead, he asked if Santa would be so kind as to take him back to Minneapolis. Santa smiled underneath his beard that was as white as the snow, and nodded. Jimmy jumped on the iron sled, and in awe, sat next to Santa who took most of the seat.
High in the sky while the reindeers flew through the clouds with amazing speed, Jimmy looked below and snapped the photo above. Though shivering from the icy cold air, Jimmy wrote a short note and asked Santa to deliver it to us. Santa paused and uttered ‘ho ho ho’ while glancing at what Jimmy had written:
Peace on earth and good will towards all.
