This week, Santa visits and Ben gets a gift. We also help Sarah deal with bouts of insomnia, just in time for the holiday break.

Lately I have been plagued with bouts of insomnia. What can I do to get a decent night’s sleep?


We answered her question using the Harry Potter Tarot by Elly Pieper. Ben was stunned into awed silence for a moment. He loves this deck. One interesting thing to note is that each minor arcana card has a specific name.
