Do You Believe In Santa? Krista Ames Shares Her Thoughts, Her Newest Book & A Giveaway

Do you believe in Santa?
Does your local post office have a Santa mailbox?  
If you have kids, do they write letters to Santa? 
Have you ever written your own letter to Santa?

As we grow into adults, we tend to change our view on Santa from believing in him to taking over the roll of playing Santa.  I can’t speak for my husband, but I look forward to shopping as ‘Santa’.  I usually only pick a couple gifts for each of my children and I even go as far as buying and hiding a special roll of wrapping paper and using it for the ‘Santa’ gifts only.  
Every year I encourage my kids to write their letter to Santa.  Of course, there is always a slight worry about what they will put in the letter because kids these days are getting smarter and the gifts are getting more expensive.  For that reason, I encourage them to write down several different ideas in hopes that I can hit at least one when I shop. If I could take it shopping with me that would be great and I try to peek while I’m encouraging the writing but our post office has a Santa mailbox so the letter gets sealed and they put them in the box themselves.  
I have to admit I’ve not written a letter myself as an adult but if my kids ever asked me to, I totally would.  
I can only hope that I can keep the dream alive as long as my kids believe.  I can’t remember much about getting excited about Santa as a kid but I can only imagine it’s as excited as I get keeping that dream alive for my kids.

Merry Christmas everyone !

Now About Krista's Newest Release 

Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time of year, but for Harper Donaldson it’s just another day. Orphaned at an early age, she doesn’t have a single good memory of Christmas.

But, when a Santa’s Mailbox mysteriously appears in the lobby of the post office where she works as postmistress, Harper wonders what it could hurt to send her own letter to Santa.

Could he bring her the family she’d always wanted?
