Christmas is my favorite time of the year, but I’m now 20 and nothing beats being a little youth and getting very excited at the prospect of Santa Claus dropping off some presents for been a good little girl. That’s why I’ve chosen to write about when I visited Disneyland Paris when I was four.
So we’re going way back to 1998 when my family and I took a little Christmas trip to the happiest place on earth. I obviously can’t remember a lot but I do remember it being the most magical trip. I’ve never believed in Christmas more than I did when I was seeing Santa Claus with all of his Reindeer’s in the Disney parade and then lighting up the big Christmas Tree whilst sprinkling Disney Magic Dust (Which I still have kept some after all these years). Santa was obviously the real deal – He could speak English AND French and personally knew Mickey and Minnie. No one else had that magical power of being able to light the Disney Christmas Tree by spreading Disney Dust – It was so mesmerizing for me!
Disneyland doesn’t take any shortcuts, the place was decked out with the most magical decorations. The parades were enchanting and the whole experience was mind blowing for my four year old self to take in.
I think Disneyland was a place that shaped Christmas to being a truly magical time of the year and my childhood was always filled with magical memories. Whether it’s just getting together with family and watching Christmas classics such as The Polar Express (One of my favorites) or seeing the Christmas Lights and Windows in London, It always seems so magical to me. That’s why Christmas is my favorite time of the year.
