Happiness is Santa Claus
By first believing in Santa Claus, then the Easter Bunny, then the Tooth Fairy, Rant Casey was recognizing that those myths are more than pretty stories and traditions to delight children. Or to modify behavior. Each of those three traditions asks a child to believe in the impossible in exchange for a reward. These are stepped-up tests to build a child’s faith and imagination ~ Chuck Palahniuk
Hello friends, tonight a little piece on the jolly fat man of the North Pole. Honestly I’ve always struggled with the idea that we lie to our kids, this was of course before I had kids in my life. Watching my little nieces and nephews loose their minds over Santa Claus, the pure unbridled joy in their eyes makes it a no brainer. I think it’s good to let them believe there is still magic in the world and now I feel bad when they lose that ability.
So ramp the little ones up, take them to the mall santa, throw tennis balls on the roof and let them think they are reindeer hooves, find a heavy set friend and have him bring some presents into the house and ho ho ho around a bit. Let the little one’s imagination run wild so they can have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
