Do You Believe? Tis the Season!

Now through the years I have become what one would call.....A Believer! Yes you have it right, this 50+ year old women still believes in Santa Clause. Let's see, when did it begin again for me.
I always believed as a child. Then sometime later I just stopped believing. things just went down hill. I stopped celebrating Christmas.

Then about Twenty four years ago, I think. It just happened one year. That year my Mom was working with Santa. Preparing his visit to the town and the Malls. Setting up his home away from home and hiring elves to assist him. One year Mom, known at that time as Mrs Clause (I never knew her secret until that day!)Had me come and sit on Santa's lap. Something happened that day and I haven't been the same since. I still get that tickle deep down inside when I see the Real Santa. Every year since then he has never missed visiting my home. He still get those things that my daughter wants and I can not find! They just show up! Our stocking are filled with things that bring back the kid in us. For that day we are Children again, enjoying the excitement of Christmas Day.

I have read a lot of Books on Santa and I have to say the only one that is right on is; "The Autobiography of Santa Claus" by Jeff Guinn. In that book Santa Clause comes alive. It has to change ones view and cause them to Believe. Read the book!

I have seen many Movies on Santa. The Polar Express is one of my favorites. I love the way Santa makes his showing. Now every year I must watch The Santa Clause with Tim Allen. That one just goes to show how Santa continues through the centuries . As well as the Powers he has. Oh yes he can travel and alter time. Now I know why that night is the longest one for us.

Now you know my secret.. I am a kid at heart and still believe in Santa. This is for you Santa, hope you are reading my blog. For Christmas this year I would like:
Some Vintage Candies
A new Breville Electric Milk Frother
Now that's not too much and I have been an "awfully good girl this year".

Now for a Friday Question for you........

Do You Believe?

  1. It got a little bit harder to believe when I had kids of my own and had to fill their stockings and put presents out and admit that, nope, nothing new was added Christmas morning. But I held out hope for a long time!

  4. I love reliving my childhood and believing right along with Princess Nagger. In fact, I put presents under the tree for Christmas morning for hubby and me 'from' Santa - I forgot to do that one year, and PN thought we'd been naughty since we didn't get gifts from Santa. ;)

  5. In my country we don't do the Santa and so I am not used to it.

    I still read the stories and watch the movies, but it doesn't have any effect on me.

    Now I understand that children needs certain kind of atmosphere and it's ok, so I wont burst their bubble.

    I do believe in celebrating Christmas and remember Christ.

    Aloha!

  6. Well, all I have to say to you all is...Glad a couple are still in the spirit of Christmas past. As for some of you, Believing again make the joy return to your soul. Thanks for Sharing your thoughts today.
    P.S. For the little ones, Santa still put the Gift under the tree for us. You see we still believe, you must really believe to get a visit from him. Never stop Believing!
