Why I Love Santa- Speical Holiday Post

Special note- I will be returning in January 2013 on a weekly basis.
For now I have some thoughts on the man of the season....Santa Claus.

When I was a second grader, the weekly Show and Tell was a big deal for me.  It was one of the few times I loved going to school.  It was a time for me to get up and talk. (I've always loved to talk and tell stories.)  I remember the Show and Tell after the Christmas Holiday break, I brought the beautiful cat stuff toy I had received from Santa that year.  I remember proudly stating that I had gotten the toy from Santa.  I remember hearing giggles from my class mates.  I was sort of an snarky, outspoken child, so I stopped my story in order to confront the hecklers.   One of my classmates loudly proclaimed there was no Santa, and that presents come from your parents not Santa.   I disagreed with him.  The teacher suggested I take my seat.   I still to this day disagree with that kid and anyone else who says there is no Santa.  

I believe in Santa.  I know he exists.   For me Santa is all about love, generosity, magic, thinking of others, and my big one- creativity to make the world better.  For me, not to believe in Santa's existence means, what he represents doesn't exist.  Looking at the news in our world, this season, it may seem like we are in need of Santa and what he represents more than ever.  So, let's all be still in the moment and embrace Santa, and who knows...you might even see or hear him.

Wishing you all the magic and love of this season now and always.

See you all back here in 2013 for the happiest, most creativity and positive year in all of our lives!

Until then...create to feel great!

P.S.  I've been creating like a whirl wind...I hope you have been as well.
