|Spirit of Christmas - Keeping the Belief Alive

Do you believe in Santa Claus? Does your children believe in Santa Claus?
Santa exists just as surely as love and the spirit of childhood does.
It is just that, sometimes when kids and adults get older, they lose their spirit of childhood. They even start to think that Santa does not exist! Can you believe it?
Santa has been around for a very, very long time because people of all ages have kept him in their hearts.
I remember being woke up in the middle of the night as a child and chasing him as he rode through the streets of the town on top of a fire engine.
I remember many a bleak years as I was growing up, the promise of anything under the tree was slim. However, I would wake to pretty presents under the tree.
I remember I would always leave cookies and milk on a platter for "Jolly Ole Saint Nick" himself. Oh, and don't forget to leave some celery for the reindeer.
Waking up on Christmas morning to finding the crumbs on the plate and a portion of cookies left on the plate. This was okay, though, I knew he had to save some room for the other children's cookies.
I never understood how Santa could get all those presents in one bag, or make it around the world in such a short time, or even how he could get into my house when the doors were locked and I didn't have a chimney.
But I had faith, I BELIEVED. That is what counted. As long as I believed then the impossible was possible.
I even fine myself, today, still "believing" and "having faith".
I will refrain from the "negativity" of not believing in the "miracles of Christmas" or the ideas of NOT believing in Santa Claus. We all will believe and have faith in what we want.
I AM an adult and therefore, know the truth about many things. However, when it comes to believing in Santa, for a child, I personally do not see any harm in believing as long as you possibly can.
As adults, there are so many "truths" that we are faced with, that I find myself wishing I could turn back time to live as a child, so as not to be faced with such truths of the world.
As we grow into adults, there are so many things that we are pushed into, faster than we can comprehend sometimes. I tell my children, when they wish they could hurry and get a job to have their own money for whatever, or they wish that they were adults, I tell them to just enjoy the time they have right now. Don't wish your life away, because before they know it, they will have to be adults with all the hassles of daily life it has to bring.
Keep the Christmas Spirit alive as long as you can. Children are thrust into adulthood and the "real" life so fast as it is.
Let children be children and enjoy their time. Reality will hit them in the face fast enough as it is.
As far as us adults, we all could spend the time enjoying and having faith in what could be. We can get wrapped up in dealing with "real life" so much sometime that we have to just relax and let ourselves enjoy this time of year. If nothing else, especially if you have children, do it for them. Let them believe as long as they can.
From me to you: Enjoy your holidays and take time to relax and enjoy this time of year.
My wishes to you for having a great holiday and much success in all that you do.
Because It's All About YOU! and Changing Yourself and Your Life for the Better

|I certainly have very fond memories of all the excitement surrounding Christmas - both the imminent arrival of Father Christmas and the wonder of the nativity in church. These are both so important to share with our children and grandchildren|
|Lovely Blog. I also agree that children need to remain young longer. Far too many are facing adult like situations we can at least give them this spirit of Christmas|
