Ho! Ho! Ho!
In four days, is the start of "Ber Months" and we are drawing closer to Christmas. Well, here in the Philippines, Christmas starts as early as September 1st lol. I probably write something about that next time.
So anyway, this post is about though is if Santa Claus is real or not? I just stumbled on some of my old Christmas photos so yeah. Okay, we are all adults and know better of course! But what about when you were little? Were you taught that Santa was real? I personally do not remember being told Santa was real, I'd have to ask my parents and grannies if he was real.
Do you remember how old you were when you stopped believing in Santa?
One of the things I like the most every Christmas is the music and the endless Christmas cartoons and movies.
A few days ago, a movie came on with Tim Allen (comedian) called "The Santa Clause". Have you seen this movie? I laughed and cried a couple of times. I laughed because there were some genuinely funny scenes, but I was baffled when I cried because there seemed to be a storyline that suggested that when we become adults, we lose that innocent hope of this wonderful entity, we call Santa and all the joy he brings by believing he will see if we were good and bad.
It is about innocence being lost and with it, faith and hope are also lost. We tell our kids about Santa as Tim Allen did with his son, but we of course do not hold that belief. In the movie, this happened to him and then Santa fell off of his roof and he put on the Santa outfit after debating with his son about whether it was really Santa. Even after he went from house to house in the sleigh delivering presents, he kept on rambling sarcastically about the whole thing not being a reality.
I think the thing that really touched me was that his son not only believed in Santa, but he believed the most in his father. At one point his son said to his stepfather who tried convincing him there was no Santa, "Have you ever seen a million dollars?" the stepfather replied, "No" and then he replied back "then how do you know it exists? It is about having faith and believing". Very smart line!
For many or maybe even most Christmas, is a celebration of the birth of Christ and there are definitely similarities to the message of the movie or belief in Santa. It is about faith, hope, and belief. I will not dive into the religious aspects because I do not debate religion, but I just thought it was interesting the similarities.
So do you teach your kids that Santa is real?
If you don't have kids, will you?
Why or why not?
Good evening or good morning, my dear friends. I am still having a wicked hard time reconciling the fact that it's September in the next few days, and December is drawing so near. It just feels like the March, April, May, June, July didn't actually happen. Anyone else feels like we're living in a fantasy or a drama movie?
What a wild ride. That's life. All I want for Christmas though is calm, bliss, health, peace, love, light, and people to be nicer and behave better. And I want to meet Santa Claus.
