Why the Hell Am I Crying…When I See Santa?

29 Nov

The other day, I was walking through the Sandusky Mall with my mom, dad, and Mike, and Santa Claus waved at me.  Immediately, I got all misty-eyed and I can’t figure out why.

It’s not because I am afraid of him.  I’ve never been afraid of him.  I love Santa.  The more I thought about it, the more I believe it is because he ignites in me a Christmas spirit that only children can feel, and excitement that has been sucked out of us adults.  I cried because I’m sad that I am no longer allowed to lose myself in Christmas magic.

Santa waved at me, and my heart started racing and my eyes got misty and I wanted more than anything to go back to the times when I believed in Santa.  Christmas IS exciting.  Christmas SHOULD make it hard for you to sleep on Christmas Eve.  There really is still a magic about Christmas.  I hope that this year, we all let ourselves realize that.
