Santa's Magic Key

Santa's Magic Key

Our stockings hang upon a wall.
We have no fireplace at all!
You see the problem is quite clear.
Santa, how will you get in here?

We heard a legend. Is it true?
Of magic only you can do.
We'll leave out any plain old key
and mark it "Santa" so you can see.

Your magic makes the key fit right,
so you can get inside that night.
Thank you Santa, here's our key.
The milk and cookies are on me!

Santa left this for us on the morning of Christmas Eve the first year we were in the new house. Kendall was concerned, you see...because our old house had a fireplace, and this new one didn't. We hung the key on our front door handle and she slept very well that night, knowing that Santa would have no problem getting in to leave her gifts under the tree!

I wrote Santa a letter that year, thanking him for the wonderful ornament and asking where he found it. He replied that his, of course, was an original...but pretty good knock-offs could be found here. :)
