r34 – Special Gifts from Father Christmas
September 5, 2012
Everyone likes gifts at Christmas, but the Pevensie children didn’t know how useful certain presents would be.
In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Narnia is under a spell that makes it always winter, but never Christmas. Aslan’s appearance breaks the spell, but as this is happening Peter, Susan and Lucy become part of an unusual scene. Father Christmas shows up to greet them and provide gifts.
Peter is given a sword and shield, Susan a bow and arrows, along with a magical horn for requesting help, and Lucy gets a dagger along with a magic cordial with healing powers. While each uses them in that story, they also become of practical help in future adventures.
Do you remember why Edmund doesn’t get a gift? Tell me and leave other comments or questions below.
