Right before Christmas, Santa took a short break from all the hustle and bustle at the North Pole to pay a visit Denton, Texas, and some very special boys at the Nelson Children’s Center. The youngest boys, ages 5-11, had the opportunity to meet-and-greet Santa Claus up close and personal, and ask him their most burning Santa-related questions. One particularly curious boy even did the “pulling-the-hair-test” on Santa! When one of the boys asked him, “Are you the real Santa Claus?” Santa replied, “That’s for YOU to decide!”
This special activity, along with the all-out joy of Christmas morning, was such a sweet blessing for the kids, most of whom cannot remember a Christmas where they received a gift or such love. Thanks to the fabulous community of Nelson supporters, it was a Christmas to remember for every one of the 60 kids at the Nelson Center!
