He recalled all those times when the reindeer's reins got knotted or the twine and ribbons got tangled in his bag. He also thought that maybe he needed a tool, to help the elves when they carved toys.
But most of all he wanted something that was uniquely his - something he could use throughout the year - when he relaxed on the beach, to maybe whittle a piece of drift wood into a cane or carve a pipe with.
But then - when he really thought about it - he decided he wanted three things for Christmas - a knife designed and custom built just for Ol' Saint Nick and for you and yours to have a wonderful and blessed holiday season - plus to remember what the true meaning of Christmas is all about.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and may Christ's love and blessings be yours throughout the New Year!
Ian and Linda van Reenen!
