How To Keep Santa's Magic Alive

Santa signs My Friends and I book
When you were a child, have you ever wondered what Santa's favorite food is? What he likes to do in his free time? What songs he likes to listen to? What books he likes to read? What he wanted to be when he grows up?

If you said yes to any of those questions, then there's a good chance your children are asking themselves the same questions. Have your child's questions answered by the man himself and keep Santa's Magic alive. Find out how.

Great Gift Alternatives To Toys For Kids In And Around Austin


Toys are important, toys are fun.

Some toys are amazing and enriching to a child's imagination, learning and creativity.

But: Many toys are just something that gets wrapped up in pretty paper, so your child has something to rip into on Christmas morning, or on their birthday, or on any other gift-inspired holiday. These toys often last only for a short time, are forgotten in no time, and end up on the landfill.

Austin is an amazing city to raise kids.

The Austin area has so much to give and offers some fantastic toy-alternatives that serve your children (and your entire family) well.

German Christmas Traditions And How To Prepare For Christmas The German Way


Christmas is the most important and most celebrated holiday in Germany and is very much enjoyed by children and parents alike. However, the Holiday season and pretty much the entire month of December (even the last week of November) demands a lot from parents in Germany. Preparing for the festivities is very time consuming and due to extreme sugar consumption you’ll see more kids bouncing off the walls and driving their parents insane than in any other month – as the following Christmas traditions will attest.
