I just recently got back on my FaceBook page, which means that I took a well needed break from an overbearing, narcissistic driven, and highly opinionated site! I have noticed that I can literally observe social media in spurts. In the short time that I have been back on FaceBook I have observed quite a few posts and videos that do nothing to increase intellect, confidence, optimism, or any other thing that can remotely improve the well-being of another being, potentially influence a person to do better, or enhance or improve a person’s character.
Out of all the post that do not have any significance, the ones that stick out the most are the ANTI-CHRISTMAS post, which are quite atrocious and downright disrespectful. Christmas is about love, spreading happiness, and being hopeful. Christmas is meant to be beautiful!
I get it, you may not believe in Santa Claus, God, Spirits, Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, etc., but you all are expressing your hate and discontent to children, innocent-minded children!
Your children may be fortunate to receive a plethora of gifts, but there are so many children who pray and hope for a warm bed to lay their head at night, clean water to drink and bathe themselves, toys to play with, books to read, food to eat, the list goes on…. Their Santa Clause may not be a fat guy dressed in a red robe that slides down a chimney. Their Santa may be you, me, our friends, the various of organizations and foundations who donate at special times of the year or all throughout the year. They believe in HOPE. Hope that someone will be generous enough to think about them at a sentimental time of the year.
So when you project to the world via social media that Santa Claus is not real, you are truly projecting that belief systems do not exist, and that believing in something creates a false sense of purpose to receive, to give, to achieve, to share, to wish, to hope, and to pray. What you are perpetuating to society is that you have no moral compass because you have never struggled or never wanted for anything!
So if you won’t admit it, I will be the first to admit, I have struggled and I do have a strong belief system in God. Over the years I have experienced that feeling that comes when you have the sudden urge to give is not an act of myself, it is an act of my belief, which is the Holy Spirit that dwells within me. I personally believe that a moral compass is what drives people to give and to believe in the Spirit of Christmas, the Spirit of Santa, and most of all the Spirit of God. God is my Santa, so believe what you want, but do not strip away the Spirit of Christmas that dwells in innocent-minded children or other people around you!
And… if you are too afraid to say Merry Christmas because it is politically incorrect, I would like to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Hope my dog, Prince, cheers you up!
Every time I read this passage I get chills (It is an amazing feeling to believe in something and someone)
