Magic Snow


Christmas is a magical time of year, especially for kids! One staff member remembers how Santa Claus made each Christmas extra special.

"Santa always visited our house and checked on each kid on Christmas Eve. We knew this because when we woke early Christmas morning, there would be a trail of magic snow from the North Pole that Santa tracked into each of our rooms when he peeked in on us. Why is the North Pole snow magic? Because it doesn't melt, of course!"
