Santa’s Simple Request ~

Ever since I was a little girl, I have been enamored with Santa, or the mere thought of him.  What is his secret?  How does he stay so happy all of the time, even when little children are screaming to get away from him?  What is his magical technique for spreading Christmas joy? My first …
