My daughter’s Elf on the Shelf has returned, and although finding new and creative places for her to appear can be exhausting (hell, remembering to move the damn thing can be a real challenge—which is why my husband, thankfully, took on the job), I love seeing the excitement and wonder that Christmas brings to her.
A friend of mine asked me the other day if Nola still believed in Santa (she’s 8). I’m happy to report that yes, she does. And even though someday she’ll discover that Christina is just a doll that Bubba moves around and Mommy is the one that buys Santa’s gifts to her, I hope she always will believe.
Because I still believe in Santa. I believe a world in which Santa exists is just a better world to live in. I believe in Christmas magic. And I’ll tell that to my daughter when she starts to uncover the deception we parents employ to create that magic for our children.
We need more magic and light in the world.
You can buy the books one at a time or all together as a boxed set. Here’s the synopsis:
Kristine Grayson’s popular Santa Series—Up on the Rooftop, Visions of Sugar Plums and Dressed in Holiday Style—together in one volume.
The magic of Christmas takes a lot to pull off, even for Santa. Enter the elves and humans of Claus & Company, who help Santa make the big day happen.
But any time an elf or member of Santa’s family walks among the mortals of the Greater World, risk follows. The risk of discovery. The risk of failure. And most of all, the risk of falling in love.
Bestselling author Kristine Grayson makes Christmas magic with these three stories of holiday romance—no mistletoe required.
The boxed set is available for $5.99 in ebook here.
And don’t forget that if you’re still in the market for Christmas gifts, the WMG December Holiday Spectacular includes two surprise gift boxes: one for writers and one for the whole family. Each is valued at more than $250 but is an amazing holiday deal for $50. You can find out more and place an order here.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to see where that elf will turn up next…
