I believe in Santa Claus

Do you

put cookies and milk

on your fireplace

on Christmas Eve?

We do!

Why?

Because we belong to the Santa Club

and want to keep the magic alive in our house.

“You better

watch out!

You better not cry!

You better not pout,

I’m telling you why!

Santa Claus is coming…

to town!”

What is it about this one soul,

Santa Claus,

that sparks “something” in so many ways,

with so many people! 

It is perplexing

and wonderful

to the intellect!

Think back to the year you felt too old to believe anymore.  How did that Christmas feel?  The key word is “FEEL”—Not what it was like. 

There was a portion of your heart that was heartbroken, disappointed.  Santa Claus gives us not just tangible gifts, but the most important gifts he gives is believing in positive, good, happy, wonderful, magical, feelings.  Those innocent feelings of the inner child.  Those are his most precious true gifts he brings and they are also very powerful!!  It’s not the doll, the i-pod, or the candy.  It is the magic and surprise! 

Santa Claus is a constant in a changing world to hold on to.  Every human soul needs  a good feeling to hold on to that doesn’t require anything but to believe!  He is not any religion, he can be the color of any skin, he can speak any language, he can eat your kind of foods, and leave magic however he wants.  You can believe for how ever long you choose–at any age!

“He sees you when your sleeping.

He knows when you’re awake.

He knows if you’ve been bad or good

So be good for goodness sake!

Oh…”

 “Touch magic—–pass it on….”
