Christmas lights

But so too is the spirit of what the Christmas season, the holiday season, is through the eyes of a child ages 6 and 7, the same age as so many of those young victims in Newtown.

The wish for Santa to make sure sister gets a toy.

The desire to see Santa thinks of Dad for a new coat or fishing pole and for mom some cleaning “stuff” or new clothes.

The acknowledgement that, no, that had not been good all year, but they hoped to earn a place on Santa’s “nice” list.

There are several letters from children who have recently moved to Florida, to Gulf County.

They provide the new address so that Santa is sure to find them.

And there are those who wonder just how Santa does find their home.
