Santa is real

I was 9 when I first found out that Santa isn’t real and my parents weren’t the ones who broke the news to me, it was my classmates. I was devastated!

Why am I talking about it after all these years? Well, firstly because Christmas is just around the corner and secondly because I have been noticing that a lot of my students below the ages of 10 do not believe in Santa Claus. Can you believe it? How can someone kill the joy of Christmas for children?

But the funny thing is that Santa is real. Yes he is!

Our parents are the one’s who bring us gifts on Christmas, so they are our very own Santa!

Christmas is about hope, giving, love and sharing and in fact anyone who is kind and giving is a Santa. Santa lives in all of us and he will continue to as long as there is love and people continue to care about each other. This holiday season, donate to a charity of your choice, give to a food drive or go drop off some gifts at an orphanage or a children’s home so that everyone can experience Christmas.

To children all over the world: Give Β Santa a.k.a your parent a hug because they have worked very very hard for you. Merry Christmas Everyone!

  1. Santa is still alive in my house, from ages 14 down to 11 =)

    I’m pretty sure that makes me a bad dad, but everytime my kids asked me what i believe, i said it didn’t matter what “i believed”, all that mattered was what they believed, and that they were comfortable with their beliefs.

  2. I was sworn to secrecy by my father. I woke up Christmas Eve at age 7 to find him downstairs delivering (assembling) Santa presents and eating cookies. I never told my brother!

    Lovey post – Merry Christmas

  3. I was all busted up when I found out Santa was not real, but I was relieved when I discovered the Easter Bunny was a fraud. I was always scared about where those little chocolate eggs came from! I may be a varmint eating Hillbilly, but I steer clear of certain “items.”
    Merry Christmas.
