The art of believing

FEATURE – My name is Hollie and I have a confession to make: I believe in Santa. Not the Santa we know – the man of largesse in a red suit who commands a team of reindeer and impossibly flies around the world in a single night – not him, not exactly. But I believe in what Santa represents, which to me is the spirit of Christmas, good people and, yes, a little magic.

Aquinnah: The Polar Express

There are many things and people to miss and mourn this holiday season, but one thing I will truly miss is the annual Aquinnah Holiday Party. This is one of the best events in Aquinnah, with everyone coming together, bringing food and good cheer. Even if everyone doesn’t get along (and we know they don’t), they pretend to at this party. The kids get so excited for Santa, even some of the older ones still think it’s kind of cool, (even though they would never admit it). Stay safe and healthy, everyone so we can gather next year. In good news, Juli Vanderhoop and her sister-in-law, Jamie, and a whole bunch of moms in town helped to organize “Santa at the Fire Station on Christmas Eve Day.” A sign-up went around town for families to choose their own time slots between 10 am and 1 pm, so that only one family will be there at a time. It’s not a party for everyone, but it is some magic for the kids.

Tom Hanks Played 7 People in The Polar Express, Including Santa — No Wonder It's So Magical!

Sure, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, and A Christmas Story all reign supreme when it comes to holiday movies, but if you love America's Dad(TM) Tom Hanks as much as we do, then you don't want to sleep on The Polar Express. (Really, you might miss your stop.) In addition to voicing the enthusiastic and incredibly punctual conductor in the film, Hanks plays a total of six other characters who contribute to the whimsy and magic radiating from the 2004 Christmas movie.
