Several years ago we first ran into the sticky situation that is a brewing storm right before Christmas. I was so worried my lineman husband would miss Christmas morning, and the kids (and myself!) would just be sad opening gifts from Santa instead of really enjoying the day. i decided to be prepared and formulated a plan to avoid that situation should we need to. (We didn't that year, but have other years.)
So, this letter from Santa was born! And now I'd like to share it with you.
Santa understands that not all line families get to be to be together on Christmas morning, and for those special situations is a special solution. He can leave a few gifts and treats and come back later!
