One of the Enchanting characters one can associate with is Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas or simply “Santa”. When for the first time in my life I learnt that Father Christmas would bring gifts to the homes of the good children on 24 December, my happiness knew no boundaries. I spent sleepless night, analyzing, cross checking whether I was good the previous year. I cursed myself that I should have known earlier that Father Christmas gives gifts on Christmas Night.
In the later years, I made it a point to read many a books- Chandamama (Indian monthly magazine for children) and Fairy tale books. Wonder Why? Because I sincerely believed that these stories are true. I loved to recollect what the other kids all over the world got as gifts on this Wonderful day. And eventually I was taught to receive more gifts I should learn to share and give gifts. May be I feel this is the essence of the Enchanting Story surrounding Santa.
It really amazes and astounds me to the fact that I still cannot get over the feeling till date. I imagine Santa bringing loads of happiness and surprises carefully wrapped on the night before Christmas and placing them with due care at my place.
Merry Christmas… 🙂
