  1. I love these pictures! I felt like I was a little girl again. Thank you for celebrating Santa and all his magic in a culture that lately fears saying “Merry Christmas!”

    • Many of the images in this post are ones that I have loved since childhood and they give me that feeling too. Happy New Year to you too.

  2. Great set of illustrations.
