Today, December 9th, is National Believe Day. Believe in what? Santa. National Believe Day is part of a campaign with Macy's called Santa is Real. Macy's wants to keep the magic of believing alive across the internet so they are asking everyone to share what they believe with #santaproject across social media.
Santa didn't get to visit our house when the boys were little due to the religious beliefs of my ex husband. That was one thing we never agreed on and always made me kind of sad. We couldn't have Santa visits so even though I grew up with the magic of believing- the letters to Santa, putting cookies and milk out for Santa and my boys didn't have that. I was so glad that Proud Geek Daddy and I agree on Santa coming to the house for Kaylee. She will get to grow up with the magic of Santa.
One of my fondest memories of my believing the Santa magic is one of my Mom and I staying up "late" to make Santa a batch of Carolina Delight cookies (also know as no bake cookies or preacher cookies). We did this every year and now I get to pass the Santa cookie tradition on to my little girl.
Macy's has a place you can visit online called Santa Is Real where you can read all about Santa Claus and it even offers some FAQ's if you have little ones that are full of questions about Santa. You can also check out the video below on the benefits of believing.
In addition to all of the Macy's Believe Day magic, for every letter mailed to Santa at your local Macy's store they will donate $1 to the Make A Wish foundation (up to $1 million) and today while reading the #santaproject tweets on twitter I saw that today the donation value is $2 instead of $1 per letter! So get those letters to the Macy's mailboxes and continue to share the Santa magic (and keep on believing).
