Santa Clause: The Documentary
Every Friday, Oscar and Jenny have the youth over for fika or a movie or a board games. The only people in attendance, apart from our hosts and their twin daughters, were Mike, Tracy, and myself--we are like one big, multicultural family. We had popcorn and saffron buns and watched The Santa Clause, in preparation for the coming of winter. It has been a very long time since I watched a Christmas movie with someone who actually believed in Santa Claus. Little Erika, one of the twins, held my hand the entire time, looking at me for confirmation of certain information revealed about Santa Claus, and believed the movie to be very much an accurate depiction of how things really are, how elves look, how reindeer fly, and how Santa fits into houses without chimneys.
