We are a family of cat lovers, which may shed some light on why A Pussycat’s Christmas is the #1 requested Christmas book in our house. However, the story is presented in poetic descriptive detail from a unique perspective that I believe any animal lover will enjoy.

The last page of The Polar Express makes me tear up: EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Because “Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me as it does for all who truly believe.”

 and the best descriptor of what Santa Claus really is and why the “bell still rings for me,” I’m not just a whimsical figure who wears a charming suit and affects a jolly demeanor. You know, I… I… I’m a symbol. I’m a symbol. I’m a symbol of the human ability to be able to suppress the selfish and hateful tendencies that rule the major part of our lives. If… you can’t believe, if you can’t accept anything on faith, then you’re doomed for a life dominated by doubt.”

From my house to yours, A very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! God bless…
