I found out recently the story of Santa Claus: apparently Santa Claus is one of the pre-modern representations of the gift-giver from church history and folklore, notably St Nicholas and Sinterklaas, merged with the English character Father Christmas.
Isn’t it fascinating how the way figures and customes involved in our celebration of seasons as such actually come from very simple ideas from the past that persevered through evolutions of festivities?
So this year, have you been Naughty or Nice?
This gift-giver has also become a useful tool for parents to remind their children to ‘be good’ throughout the year. As we grow older we often forget the simple principle of being nice instead of naughty. Does it become less important? Today it seems we all necessarily feel we deserve the presents and gifts already whether or not we have been ‘naughty or nice’.
Anyway enough with the preaching, I actually just wanted to say MERRY CHRISTMAS and whether or not you’ve been ‘naughty or nice’ you deserve the presents for just getting through this year and I believe, striving to make decisions that don’t hurt people (including yourself). And if maybe, you’ve been a little more naughty than nice, then start to think before actually doing things and maybe that’ll make you deserve your presents a little more.
