A CAROLINA CHRISTMAS CAROL
I might as well go ahead and tell you right up front: I believe in Santa Claus.
I know, I know. It sounds like I’ve had too much eggnog, don’t it?
All I ask is that you wait till I get through telling my story before you make up your mind.
When I was a kid, Christmas time had a magic to it that no other season of the year had. There was just something in the air, something that you couldn’t put your finger on, but it was there, land it affected everybody.
It seemed like everybody smiled and laughed more at that time of year, even the people who didn’t hardly smile and laugh the rest of the year. “You reckon it’s gonna snow? I sure do wish it’d snow this year. Do you reckon it’s gonna?” Heck no, it won’t gonna snow. As far as I know, it ain’t never snowed in Wilmington, North Carolina, at Christmas time in the whole history of man. It seemed like everybody in the world had snow at Christmas except us.
