It doesn’t matter how if you’re an excited toddler or an annoyed teenager, something magical happens when you see Santa Claus. But if you stop by Santa Land at Lincoln Square Arlington, your visit to Ole St. Nick will not only create a beautiful holiday memory, but also help A Wish With Wings grant magical wishes for little ones with life-threatening conditions.
There are so many places around the metroplex where you can sit on his lap and snap a photo. But I have a special place in my heart for the Lincoln Square location because my sweet son Jackson was the recipient of one of those wishes. For our first family vacation, we got to travel to the most magical place on Earth.
You can read all about our trip to Disney World and the Give Kids the World Village here, but just know that “magical” doesn’t even begin to describe our experience. From the limo ride to the airport to being greeted with a “Hi Jackson!” at every ride we entered, our entire family was overwhelmed with hospitality.
And when I saw Jackson meet Mickey Mouse…be still my heart. It wasn’t just about traveling to Disney World, it was the opportunity to share with Jackson about why his being a little different makes him even more amazing.
I cried the entire trip as I watched my family experience all of the magic Disney World brings. And even as I sit here typing this post, I shed a little tear just thinking about this beautiful moment. I am eternally grateful for A Wish With Wings. I could never repay them for all they did to make my son’s wish come true. I can, however, go snap a photo with Santa so that other little ones can have their dreams come true too. Isn’t that what the Holidays are all about anyways?
Even if you’re an adult, Santa’s rosy cheeks and fluffy beard will make any Grinch a little less green. Santa Land at Lincoln Square Arlington will be open until Christmas Eve.
