When I was a child, the idea of Santa Claus never surprised me. In fact, I didn't know about Christmas stockings to be put on the door so that Santa will fill it with gifts while I am asleep. I hadn't visualized Santa having reindeer and him making children amazed with his sleigh loaded with gifts. All I knew about Christmas was that, it's a celebration that the baby Jesus is borne. And that gifts are plainly coming from my parents and godparents. Though we were raised in a little town near the city lights, vague if i may recall, I could not recount someone ever told me tell-tales of gifts coming from a Santa. Well, somehow it did good..because I had no expectations at all. No false hope coming my way. However,I still couldn't help but wonder if I'd ever experienced the wonder of Christmas. Because some say, to make children believe that Santa is real is to never let them lose the wonder.
Now that I'm a grown-up, I am just content and happy to let children around me believe that Santa is coming our way at Christmastime! And the golden rule: NEVER LOSE THE WONDER!:)
