I Believe in Santa Claus

I am a woman of deep faith and treasure the story of the first Christmas and do believe that the birth of Christ is the real reason for the season. The gift of the Christ Child from God was and is the greatest gift ever given to those of us who believe.

All major faith systems have the message that it is important to give of ourselves, to give love, to give respect, and to give to those less fortunate than us. Giving is a very important aspect of any faith.

Santa Claus personifies that act of giving and the magical feeling when you have given selflessly to another. He allows the child in all of us to remember the wonder and delight that the Christmas season brings to us all. He reminds us that we receive blessings or gifts when we follow our faith and live a good life. His message of being a giving spirit transcends to all faith systems
