the real santa
Having seen A Miracle on 34th Street dozens of times as a little girl, I always believed that the real Santa worked at Macy's in Herald Square. So, fighting the department store crowds, and riding the escalator to the 8th floor with the turtle in tow was a real treat. And I must say, I think there's a very good chance we met the "real" Santa. Because, though he looks a little ornery in the photo, he was an absolute dear and full of magic. Dressed beautifully, with apple cheeks and a twinkle in his eye, he whispered in my little guy's ear, "It's your first Christmas and I've been waiting to meet you."
