Solution to Santa

I hated Christmas as a child.

Only now have I grown to love it.

I had a restless sleep the other night and in a haze I thought of a problem to solve all of childhoods misfortunes around Christmas.

A new story that I would love to tell my children and keep their spirits bright.

The issue in my family was my father: who said Santa was real, and my mother who by religion: disagreed.

I’ve decided to solve this problem by one little tale:

We all know St. Nick was a real man and I mean, being a human he would have died long ago.  Yet, before he died, he gave a gift to every person alive, young and old– and that present was the spirit of Christmas.  And that is why every person gives and receives presents — because everyone has this Santa magic inside of them.  And the men in malls dressed up as Santa are helping doing their part keeping holiday spirit.

Therefore Santa is real, the spirit is alive, and every child has their own Santa magic to be proud of.

So tell me what you think, if you have any ideas or insights toward my possible solution to the problem that is “Santa’s being”.

    I like your take on the Santa thing. There are too many people out there who want to be buzzkills about the Santa being real or not, but in all actuality the Christmas spirit behind Santa is the most important thing.
