My son's favorite Christmas movie by far is The Polar Express. What makes it a bit more special is that his birthday is just a few days before Christmas. I know many people that I've spoken too that just don't like having a birthday during the holiday season, but my son just loves it. So for his 5th birthday we took him to see Santa on The Polar Express,
and it was the most magical time that he and my daughter have ever had during the holidays. After a very lengthy drive, we arrived in a little town covered in snow. Snow is not something we've seen much of living in Southern California, unless it's a snow cone during summer! So we were very excited to see it sprinkled everywhere.
When it was time to visit Santa at the North Pole, we all got our Christmas jammies on and boarded the train. During the train ride we sang Christmas carols, drank hot coco, and speed through a magical tunnel that helped us get to the North Pole faster.
When we arrived at the North Pole, we saw the village, elves, and good ole' St. Nick! Santa boarded the Polar Express to wish each child a Merry Christmas and to give a bell to all those that still believed.
When we all got home there was even a note from Mr. C thanking the children for visiting him all the way in the North Pole. My gift to you this Christmas season is the FREE PRINTABLE Note from Santa, for you to use this holiday season. And remember, "the bell still rings for all that truly believe."
