Love List # 54

My all- time favorite Christmas book as a child, and now I get to read it to Mia. It is called "Letters from Father Christmas" by J.R.R. Tolkien. They are the detailed letters and drawings from "Santa" to the kids explaining the drama happening up there at the north pole (goblins, polar bear cut his paw, the pole fell on his house, the bath flooded the toy shop, etc...) Amazing stuff. Love him.

Oh! My grandparents have this in a basket in the bathroom during the holidays. When I was a kid, I thought my older cousins had made it especially for my grandparents. Ha!
