Autism and Christmas
As many of you will know, and some wont, my son is 16 and has autism. He still believes in Father Christmas, and we don't ever want that taken away from him. The only issue is… and follow this… Father Christmas is magic. He knows what you want. Therefore if you think the list of what you want in your head then Father Christmas will know exactly what you want.
Therefore, there is no point in telling Mum and Dad. At all.
You can see the problem. LOL.
Christmas Day is chaos, and Matt hates to be watched doing things. So we can't watch him open his presents. He opens them in the hallway, and often isn't keen on opening the last of his presents at all, until we are all safely up at the table playing games. This year is the first time he is going into town with his own money to buy presents for us all. I can't see how that will go wrong at all. I'm excited and happy that he has had a good year and feels he can do this, and I am doubly excited to see what he chooses for us all.
