Santa met with me today and shared some disturbing thoughts: he feels that Christmas spirit is waning in the world.
What does that mean?
The key message of Christmas is peace. Santa says that peace is beginning to fail in many places.
The most important action of Christmas is love. Santa says the world is becoming a mean place and that we need more love everywhere between people.
The best feeling of Christmas is spirit – that feeling of hope and brotherhood that comes from doing nice things for other people – just because. Love is what makes that happen. Santa says we need more of that.
Santa says that if we can’t get more Christmas spirit going soon, this could in fact become a really difficult Christmas season.
What do you think? Can you be nicer to people? Can you find ways to serve them to make them happier? Can you spread smiles? Can you give with joy, receive with gratitude and look out for the best in others?
These are important things to think about as Christmas approaches.
