Christmas and Santa Claus

Do you believe in Santa Claus?  Well many children do. But all the parents and older kids know that Santa isn’t a real person but represents the spirit of Christmas. But although he is not a real person someone must have made him and for a reason. His true name was Saint Nicholas who was a monk living in Holland, and he gave away gifts to the poor.  After a few years they shortened his name to be Santa Claus. After that Santa was a tradition in many countries of the world especially America. Many of the countries celebrate Christmas on the December25th. The tradition for the month of December is to decorate your home and put up your stockings, trees and nutcrackers. The colors of Christmas are red green and white. One of the most famous things to do in December is to visit Santa Claus and sometimes his elves too. Most children will visit him in the local malls and super markets. The tradition is to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what you want for Christmas. On Christmas Eve most families watch Christmas movies and cuddle under the fireplace. Most parents let their children bake cookie for Santa. Before everyone is in bed children lay out a tray with milk and cookies. Sometimes they lay out carrots and sugar cubes for the reindeer.  The next morning the children wake up and find there is no more cookies or milk left from Santa and see that the under the tree are bags of presents and their stockings are full of candy and small items. Children and grownups love Christmas. Christmas is one of the happiest holidays of the year and I hope your Christmas this year will be full of joy and smiles.
