Christmas is always a great MYSTERY to me, the biggest MYSTERY is how I actually end up with everything done by Christmas Day.
BUT, I do, everyone does, and Santa is real, the fairy lights eventually do work, everyone loves their Christmas gifts, even though I am never quite sure what to buy, and Christmas lunch is a splendid success, everyone is full of good cheer, 2 glasses of great Champagne and I can live with the unexplained.
Go forth with good cheer and make the MYSTERY of Christmas work for you.

AURORA BOREALIS & the GREEN LANTERN
From the archive:
I had been showing my students K-6 some of the fabulous videos on Santa Television and also videos from the Santa village showing the Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights - links are available from the Christmas page on VT An explanation for these lights is given at How Stuff Works
However a group of my kindergarten lads had an entirely different explanation. They were very excited at seeing this Nothern Lights and explained that this was where the GREEN LANTERN must live. A superhero who is incredibly popular with 5 year olds. They went on to discuss this and felt it was a very good idea to have a superhero in Lapland looking after SANTA and his Village.
Of course the non SANTA believers in in the group thought it was an equally good idea for the GREEN LANTERN to live in Lapland, because even if you don't believe in SANTA it's good to know someone is up there looking after the presents. And although a few of the 5 year olds doubted the existence of Santa, they were all quite short that the GREEN LANTERN was real.
WHAT WONDERFUL IMAGINATIONS
The GREEN LANTERN is the name of several superheroes from the fictional DC Universe, all of whom are characterized by a power ring.
Each GREEN LANTERN possesses a power ring and green lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. The ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe and can be very dangerous. The ring of the Golden Age GREEN LANTERN is magically powered.Each GREEN LANTERN possesses a power ring and green lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it.
