The holiday season, a time for cards, shopping, cooking, family
gatherings, traveling and so much more. Finding out what the children want from
Santa and what everyone else on your Christmas list wants.
I believe in Santa! No I am not 12 years old and yes I was told
the secret of Santa but that does not mean I have never stopped believing. If
you are wondering if I am crazy I can assure you I am not. I wanted to share my
thoughts on this as it has been on my mind for several weeks now and has been
brought up a few times.
I have always believed in Santa, as to me believing during the
holiday season makes everything seem more…magical. When I was younger Santa met
something different to me than it does now that I am older. To me Santa not
only can offer presents as it once did, but hope, possibility, miracles, magic
all wrapped with a sense of joy. Now that I am older, and have become an adult,
and understanding who or what Santa is I still believe.
Santa can mean something different to anyone, whether it means
someone that helps you through the holiday season, finding someone special, an
act of kindness from a stranger, a helping hand, or giving a gift, just about
anything. Santa can be a higher power (as to me Jesus Christ), miracle
performer, an entity or just the guy in a red suit on a soda can.
This season can be hard on many people, there is so much joy and
love in the air with hearts open and the one time of year that people are more
in the giving spirit. For some although this maybe the time of giving, not all
are in a position to receiving the good graces of others, or have people in
their lives that can offer that. Then there are the misfortunes some may
experience during this time that may even be devastating in their life. A kindness
from a stranger or a meeting of someone, can change everything, to me its
Santa, the magic of Santa, the spirit of believing.

A quote that has always stuck with me from a Christmas movie that
me and the family watch every year is “Seeing isn’t believing, believing is
seeing” The Santa Clause Just because you do not see it does not mean it isn’t there.
Santa over the years has brought much joy to children and usually they are the ones that look like they are having the most fun, I believe Santa can bring that joy, spark whatever you want to call it in our lives as well as we get older, even with something as simple as looking at Christmas lights. Rather than just bulbs on an electrical cord illuminating light, the magic that can lie within them, the same things children see when they are amazed at lights.

As I got older Christmas changed, the theme song for some years is
“Where are you Christmas” from the movie The Grinch. Sometimes it is hard to
get in the holiday spirit with all that Christmas has seem to become these
days, sales, gifts, traffic and a rush. Then I think of Santa and all that he
can offer this season among other things. This song has meant a lot to me over the years and am blessed for my holiday seasons with my family and friends.
I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday season and thank you for
taking a second from your day to read this. Merry Christmas to you and your
family from

Do you believe in Santa? What do you want him to bring you today? 
Until next time
