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)
6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,
7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.
11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
