6 Reasons Why I Shall Continue Believing in Santa

 

 

 

 

 

I believe in miracles.

I believe in Santa 🙂

Do you? What was your age, when someone ruthlessly broke the dream bubble about Santa and let’s say Tooth Fairy?

We were sad and disappointed when reality hit us. Yet, did we not still wish, Santa came the next year too and leave exactly the gift we pined for?

When we were kids, more popular and real than Santa was the Tooth Fairy who always left a Rs. 5 or Rs.10 note underneath the pillow, which we would discover first thing in the morning. The note would be there and miraculously the tooth would have disappeared.

Santa, Rudolph, gifts, the Christmas Tree all became more real only when Bhaiya and I would help my near foster mother Samy Aunty, our next door neighbour, whom we would help religiously each year, with Christmas decorations from the tree, the streamers to the beautiful Manger.

How the two of us used to look forward to it! And then a few days prior to Christmas, await the carol singers. They would walk down the street with lanterns and candles in hand, singing Hindi carols. We would serve them, Marie biscuits and Rasna or tea.

Samy Aunty’s house would vibrate with the lovely carols. Being in and off tune at times did not take away the charm of the carols.

Aunty would tell us how Santa visits homes of kids who behaved well throughout the year with gifts of their choice.

Santa NEVER came to our place. Maybe because, Christmas was never celebrated at home.

College time, Christmas only meant a ‘dance party’ at a friend’s!

It was only when I joined St. Mary’s school as a teacher and witnessed the first ever true celebrations, did I fall in love with Santa and Christmas.

I remember, that year Santa in school came on a handcart from the other end of the school grounds, taking the students unawares, to the tune of ‘Santa Claus is coming to Town”. I had goosebumps.

He gave the customary toffees to most kids.

Yes, I know, you know, most of the grown up kids there too knew that the Santa was one of the staff members.

 

 

 

But remember, many of the babies did not. They believed in Santa.

 

 

 

A third of British children stop believing in Father Christmas by the age of six – but play along to keep their parents happy, new research has revealed. … But a fair share found out “the hard way” – through social media accounts like Facebook , or after searching ‘Is Santa Real’ on the internet.

 

So here are 8 reasons why I shall ALWAYS believe in Santa:

 

  1. Santa reminds me to believe in things and their coming true in life

 

2. Santa encourages me- to be a good girl so he shall visit-good things happen to me

 

3. Santa makes me feel happy about everything I do

 

4. Santa reminds me of my inner child: Just the fantasy part of Santa

 

5. Santa for me is a celebration: To celebrate the day and to celebrate life

 

6. Santa teaches me to do things for others! To bring joy in others’ lives

 

Many have reservations about confusing the child. First telling him about it and then demystifying the mist.

I have no such reservations.

 

According to studies, a kid’s belief in Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy are unrelated to whether they had imaginary friendships or how often they played games of make-believe.

 

We managed to keep Santa alive for our son till last year.  Till his peer group killed it for him.

This year, he is a grown up boy.

He said, “Mamma, I know now, there is no Santa. All my friends have told me so. Yet, I want to believe in him. It feels nice.”

 

It is like an open secret. He knows that we know that he knows there is no Santa.

Yet, there is going to be a lovely gift for him underneath the tree tomorrow morning. Not just for him but for the entire family.

  • First you believe in Santa
  • Then someone spills the beans. Your heart breaks.
  • You grow up. You become skeptical and cynical. About life, not just about Santa.
  • You forget all about him

 

We, though at this stage, have a choice

  • Of being Santa or
  • Looking like Santa 🙂

The latter shall happen sooner or later with layers of fat and white hair but what about the first option?

Being Santa. Feels great to be one!

A small little gift for all in the family from Santa or Secret Santa. Or a small gift for the person who needs love and attention, is all it takes.

It shall make your Christmas. And theirs.

 

 

And for the child….let the fantasy remain…

Afterall, even Bon Jovi too sang:
