“Like I always say, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’.” I looked down at him over my glasses.

“You’re right, it’s not broke, but it’s not efficient.” Holding his newfangled electronic notepad, he flipped through spreadsheets and flight schedules. “If you upgrade like I suggest, you’d be done in half the time.”

“I’m not fooling with tradition.” I held up a gloved hand, hoping to end the discussion.

“No one uses reindeer and a sleigh anymore.”

    I love Christmas for being the traditional, impossible, wonder filled thing it is and Santa for never changing.

    LOVE ❤
