The WordPress photo challenge this week is: Celebration.
I took this photo of Santa in a beautiful mall in West Palm Beach, Florida. This Santa stand in did a nice job. He “owned” the role.
The reactions of the kids to this Santa was amazing. Many of the kids just KNEW this Santa was the real deal. In this shot, Santa was having a very deep conversation with a little boy who refused to get very close to Santa, which is why Santa is leaning in. The kid, who seemed to be about five years old, was absolutely frozen in place, completely rapt up in the magic.
It is nice to see magic happen between a Santa and a kid.
I remember believing.
So, this is to celebrate the wonder of kids who still believe.
