A CHRISTMAS STORY
(To keep all
lawyers happy I will admit that much of this story is adapted from different
author’s writings. I especially pay homage to Matthew, Mark Luke & John who
gave us the original.)
came to his father in early December and said ”Daddy, some of the boys in my
class said Santa is make believe and a fake!” I told them that I would ask you
and then I would know the truth. Well Daddy, what is the truth.
Son, first let
me ask you if you enjoy giving gifts to people at Christmas time. Well yes
Johnny said, I like the look in their eyes and the happiness in their face when
they open them. I know I made someone happy. Son, the beginning of the
Christmas story started in a stable over 2000 years ago. The baby Jesus was born
and people came from far & wide to pay homage to him. Three kings came and
brought gifts of Gold and precious
fragrances . Gift giving started way back then. Some time later people began
giving gifts to each other to show their love and gratitude to others. In
different countries the one in charge of the gift giving was called different
names. There was St. Nicholas, Father Christmas and many others including Santa
Claus. Now Mommy & Daddy know that
Santa has an awfully big task to get all the presents that people want all in
one night, Christmas eve. So Mommies & Daddies all over the world pitch in
and buy gifts and become Santa’s helpers.
It is easy to
say, like your friends, no, there is no Santa. But the spirit of Christmas has
prevailed for over those 2000 years since Jesus was born. I for one am not
going to take the chance of saying that spirit does not exist because I want to
wake up on Christmas morning and find
many of the gifts I hoped for!
getting ready for Christmas.
