“We can CATCH Santa???”

Catch Santa in your house

My 7 year old son Jackson was looking over my shoulder at my laptop and saw the picture of Santa and the words “Catch Santa“.

He shrieked with excitement, “We can catch Santa??? We can get a picture of him in our house?”

I smiled and chuckled to myself. A child’s love for magic and the wonder of Christmas is unlike anything we adults can ever experience again.

I explained, “Yes, this website tells us how to do it. But the magic only works if there are no children around.”

“But you can show me the picture, right?”

“Yes, Jackson. I’ll show you the picture.”

If you’re wondering what Jackson and I are talking about… Catching Santa, it’s a creative new site called Capture the Magic.

I wrote a post a few days ago about this fun way to ‘catch Santa in your own house’ and announced a giveaway. Hop over and leave a comment for your chance to win.

You’ve only got one more day to enter. The giveaway is open until Friday, December 11th.

We hope your kids have as much fun catching Santa this year as I know Jackson will have.
