Letters: Dear Secret Santa

Each week Sooke News Mirror readers express themselves on the Letters to the Editor pages

I want to let you know that you have made my family’s Christmas one to remember forever.

As my 14-year-old son, Alex, went out the front door yesterday, he looked on the front doorstep and saw a beautiful red rose. Attached to the rose was a note that said “Merry Christmas Alex. Love Santa.” Alex thought this gesture was very thoughtful and really quite amazing. He has no idea who did this for him and this is making his Christmas quite magical.

I wanted to say thanks very much to our Secret Santa. It is wonderful to know that the Christmas spirit is still very much alive. You have made our Christmas wonderful.

Alex and I were talking about it this morning and have decided that because this gesture made him feel so wonderful, we are going to start our own Secret Santa and pay it forward. We are going out tomorrow and doing the same thing for others. I can only hope that it brings them as much joy and happiness that it brought Alex this Christmas.

Merry Christmas Santa.

Paula and Alex Albert
