Every year, Santa gives the First Gift of Christmas (one of our Polar Express Sleigh Bells) to a special child at the Christmas in the Sky event in Kansas City. This year, Anna Pritchard (age 5) will be the special recipient of our sleigh bell. The following message comes from Santa Kris Kringle, whom we've worked with for many years:
The First Gift of Christmas was presented for the 12th consecutive year on Wednesday, Nov. 27 at the annual Christmas in the Sky holiday event in Kansas City. For the 12th straight year, Magical Bells supplied Santa's sleigh bell and we are so grateful. Our recipient this year was 5-year-old Anna Pritchard, a kidney cancer survivor! She was thrilled to receive your beautiful bell and she held it high for all to see as Santa proclaimed “THE FIRST GIFT OF CHRISTMASSSSSSS!!!” to the large crowd on hand for the event.
Your bells bring smiles to so many and truly are a wonderful symbol of the Spirit of Christmas. Thank you for your friendship and for supplying bells for sick children, disadvantaged children and even adults, for whom the bell still rings. Merry Christmas!
Always in the true Spirit of Christmas,
