to teach kids about chickens!
four years ago santa visited odin in the sauna and every year since then, when we’re in town for the holidays, we have a christmas eve sauna because, well, you never know maybe he’ll visit again.
this year we were in town but didn’t get a chance to light the sauna which bummed out odin a little bit, so he wrote santa a note and left him some summer sausage, carrots ( for the reindeer ) and a candy cane.
santa said he was running a little late and missed our sauna, but that’s alright, since we understand he’s quite busy on christmas eve and certainly can’t visit every year. mighty nice of him to take even a moment to leave a note and a sleigh bell. odin of course, has heard the final paragraph in the polar express many, many times:
“At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.”
