2012 SANTA CABIN

BACK TO THE NORTH POLE!

Christmas in Hanover
by
Allison Cline-Saia

One day in November, it magically appears
 
In its place on the square, where it’s stood for 75 years,

all ready and waiting for Santa to make his way

Down York Street to the square on his special sleigh.

 

Finally, the day after Thanksgiving, when the table is cleared

And everyone is filled to the brim with good holiday cheer,

The people of Hanover will gather in the streets

To see Santa ride into town perched high upon his seat.

 

Generations of families, the young and the old

Will bundle up in their mittens and scarves to stand in the cold.

And wait for their turn on Santa Claus’ knee

While watching the Christmas lights dance on the trees.

 

Yes, for seventy-five years, children have come to whisper in Santa’s ear

Their Christmas wishes, hopes, and dreams that only he can hear--

They wish for toys, for books and games

For dolls, for bikes, for computers and trains.

 

That little log cabin with the big red door and the man who lives inside

Hold a special place in the hearts of all Hanoverians far and wide--

It’s just not Christmas in the Black Rose town without a visit to the square

Where Santa will be waiting on you with holiday dreams to share!!
