This Christmas is going to be a little different. We will be celebrating it in Frankfurt instead of England as Baby Mia is due to be born on 3rd January 2017. Christmas feels different partly because Theo, who is 2.5 years old, seems to believe in Father Christmas and is very excited about the presents he will be getting.
I think it’s amazing that little children believe in Father Christmas. It just makes the whole season so magical, hopeful and simply beautiful. As far as I can remember, I don’t think I ever was made to believe in him. Christmas was awesome in my family (involved extended family, games, amazing food etc) but I knew presents came from my relatives.
We’ve had Daniel calling me up pretending to be Father Christmas to speak to Theo. That went so well! That boy was just super happy to get a call from Father Christmas! I don’t know when the magic ends, but I hope he’ll have fond memories of it all.
