Christmas Day 2013
One of the greatest memories we carry through our lives is that of how when we were young the world was infused with magic, especially at Christmas. Awaking on Christmas Day surrounded by the gifts that Santa Claus had mysteriously and secretly placed there. Such memories are truly magic! As we grew we wondered just how it was possible for Santa to do that not just for us but for children right around the world with such speed. Our critical thinking was kicking in before finally taking us to the point where no longer could we hold Santa Claus to be real. I suppose few of us can remember the specific point where our belief in Santa died. That we fail to do so tells me that the process was not overwhelming or devastating. Our lives went on and indeed we continued to celebrate Christmas, perhaps in a religious manner or one totally secular in style but celebrate it we do!
