When I was a child I was so excited when Christmas came. I would spend hours reading through each page of the Sears Catalog looking for the right gift for the Christmas. I would write everything down in a list and then I would always take time to write my annual letter to Santa. I would take plenty of time making sure that Santa could read my handwriting (which was not always the easiest to read) and then my mom would usually take me to the post office so I could send my letter in time for Santa to get it.
Unfortunately, I did not have an Scout Elf to help me get my letters to Santa. This is one reason that we are so excited to welcome back our scout elves every year to help us welcome back the holidays and to help us get my kids’ letters to Santa as well.
As you can tell my Christmas traditions are ones that I was very excited to be able to pass this on to my daughters. Every year their eyes and faces light up to send their own letters and since our Scout Elf came to live with us my girls have come to really expect that our elves will bring their letter to Santa for them!
