Christmas Wishes from Mrs. Claus

When I was little, I had cassette tapes of my Maw Maw on the radio in New Orleans being Mrs. Claus. Children would call up and ask questions about the North Pole or ask Mrs. Claus for that very special gift they hoped to find under the tree on Christmas morning. One of the things I've always admired about Maw Maw is her ability to jump feet first into new projects and try new things. She passed that quality along to my mother, too.


For the past couple of years, my Mom has been Mrs. Claus at Navy Pier in Chicago. (Did you know Mrs. Claus's first name is Cookie?) She delights the children and adds to the magical air of the holiday season.
