Unwrapping: Santa and Mrs. Claus - A Magical Romance

Ever wonder how Santa met and married Mrs. Claus?

I love Christmas movies and even the old claymation specials like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. I'm always very happy when they start running them. 
Call me sentimental but I think Christmas time is one of the most romantic times of the year perhaps even more romantic than Valentine's Day. 
My favorite holiday movies usually involve the magic of the season and a visit to the North Pole. These Santa movies tend to incite my imagination and make be wonder about such things as, are the elves immortal like Santa, do they fall in love, marry and have little elves?

But the questions that inevitably cross my thoughts concern Santa and Mrs. Claus. How did they meet? How did he woo her? And most importantly, how did he ever convince her to live at the North Pole?

Well, my curiosity got the better of me this year so I wrote a letter to the North Pole. No, I didn't write to Santa but to Mrs. Claus. I assumed it would get lost among all of the other letters to Santa or possibly opened by one of the elves who wouldn't understand that it was for Mrs. Claus but guess what? I got a reply ... color me Merry!
I was so excited to receive a response that I just had to share it with you all.  [giggle]
And I think she thought I was a kid. 

What a delightful letter she sent me!!

Of course, now this leaves me with so many more questions.
Is Santa an elf or a human who was raised with elves?
What was so special about their marriage that suddenly their little village was engulfed in a magical winter wonderland?
Does everyone there live forever? 

[Sigh] I don't suppose I could get a letter back in time for Christmas and I'm sure that Mrs. Claus is busy, so I guess I'll have to wait until next year to find out ... the rest of the story.

I do believe there's a kind of magic that surrounds the Christmas Season.  Do you? 
Happy Reading Everyone and busy, busy, there's only just over two weeks left before Nick leaves Merry behind to make his night long journey 'round the world.

Brilliant Amy! What a sweet letter.

I love the build up to Christmas, all the movies, songs and everything, nothing better than getting cosy and watching Christmas movies or bopping to Christmas songs while cleaning the house.
