A man from Washington State describes hearing Santa’s Sleigh land on his roof complete with the sounds of sleigh bells, hooves, a heavy sack and footsteps!
At the time he was a 20 year old college student. He had never held any strong belief in Santa and his family generally took a skeptical view on strange phenomena. To this day, he hasn’t told his family but like many others, he is sure of what he heard.
We all have a ‘boggle threshold’ – where the idea of extraordinary phenomena is repelled by our brain’s filter of improbability, based on our beliefs, experiences and willingness to consider what has previously remained outside our knowledge and level of understanding.
I had heard stories of people seeing and hearing Santa before but this is the first time I’ve spoken to someone about their experience. It turns out that many people have had similar experiences, either in childhood or as adults.
This was an enlightening chat for me and it has brought a sense of unexpected magic to this holiday. For that I am very grateful. I hope you enjoy it too.
Merry Yuletide One and All ✨🎅🎄❤️

Some further shared encounters:
I didn’t hear the sledge hitting the roof but I definitely heard the sleigh bells and so did my two children. It was Xmas eve and I was putting them to bed, it was just after I said you better get to sleep quickly as Santa will be here soon, at that exact moment we distinctly heard sleigh bells on the roof. My two children who were around 3 and 6 years old at the time went wide eyed and said ‘he’s here!’ and closed their eyes tight to go to sleep. It was very magical for us and only happened the once.Anonymous member of The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast Facebook Group (Nov, 2022)
I did see him once. My mother had mentioned him coming to visit us that night and I looked out of my bedroom window. The moon was high in the sky and I saw what looked to me like a sleigh and reindeer fly beneath the moon at a very fast speed.
I told everyone about it, but they never believed me. I learned quickly to keep my experiences to myself.Anonymous member of The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast Facebook Group (Nov, 2022)
