Letter from Santa: A heartwarming Christmas wish in Shelburne

A sweet little girl asked Santa for something that was very special.
A sweet little girl asked Santa for something that was very special.

None

In the past ten years or so, I have had the pleasure of filling in for Santa Claus at our downtown Christmas tree in Shelburne, N.S.

I can honestly tell you that there are a lot of Christmas memories that I can recall that were funny and heart-warming.

There is one, however, that stands out from all the rest and even to this day makes this Santa teary-eyed and emotional.

A sweet little girl asked Santa for something that was very special. When Santa asked her what she would like for Christmas, she replied that she didn’t want anything for herself, but asked Santa if there was any way she could help her little brother who was really sick.

He was in the hospital and all she wanted for Christmas was for him to get better.

To this day I can remember the look in her eyes. She was so sincere and concerned for her brother.

This little girl is probably a teenager today and I often wonder if her brother got better; hopefully he did.

I also wonder if this same little girl realizes she gave this Santa a Christmas memory he will never forget!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Santa!
