Awesome little fic, very cute! Classic Sammy 'Kay, Daddy. But when he does… please don't shoot him…" and classic Dean too "Pretend and everything," the young hunter clarified, "I know there ain't no Santa and Sammy's old enough to understand – gifts cost money. Money we need more for rock salt and stuff." And just loved John climbing in bed with his boys and holding them close.

Simple, but moving & powerful. I like how John kept up the tradition of Christmas for Mary & how he needed to do it for himself as much as for the boys.

Aw! I have to warn you. This review will probably be puncuated with way too many "Aw!"'s. I refuse to take full responsibility for them. It's partially your fault for writing such a damn cute oneshot. )
In a lot of stories, John is usually portrayed as an unfeeling bastard. I think that makes it especially gratifying to encounter your version of John which, although at times does hold a bit of that marine toughness, is usually centered on the protective, caring father that he really is. I've always enjoyed your John, but never as much as in this fic.
Personalized vials of holy water. lol You know, I bet they really do have those.
It's so lovely to see John interacting with Sam; not talking down to him, yet tenderly keeping as much of a childhood for his boy as he possibly can. Sam's plea to his dad not to shoot Santa was so adorable, but also just a bit sad. What a life these Winchesters have...that little Sammy has to worry about Santa getting a load of rocksalt in his Ho Ho Ho's!
And Dean. Oh, I could just squeeze the little guy! Giving up gifts for rocksalt. Aw! Daddy's little soldier through and through. That one really tugged at my heart strings. A nine year old shouldn't have to worry about such things. And that tear...Aw!
This story actually made me almost switch sides for a moment. I love Sam, and that conversation he had with his dad was sweet and cute, but the sacrifices Dean was willing to make, on top of all the ones he'd aleady made...Aw! I love Dean! Ok, you have to hurry and write something else so I can reignite my Sammy flame. )
Very cute and touching story, Phx. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Cute little fic. I love seeing John's possible tender moments in the boy's childhoods.
And "’Kay, Daddy. But when he does… please don’t shoot him…” is just classic wee!chesters :D I can definately see Sammy saying that.

Fantastic! What a lovely Christmas gift. Little Sammy and Dean are too sweet. And it's nice to see Daddy John once in a while.

That little fic really made the tears flow. This is the way I like to think about their Christmas as children...John being with them all the time at that time and there being the love you've so beautifully depicted.
Thank you and very well done.

Very cute. I loved John's explaination to Sammy about Santa. And his explaination to Dean on why he needs to do this for his boys. And the Angel watching over them breifly was a classy touch.

I could see a little Sammy asking John those questions. A cute, sweet story.
