Ted is here to say that whether you celebrate the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, the winter solstice, the tradition and joy of giving and receiving gifts, Hanukkah or one of the various holidays from around the world, he and I wish you a very, very Merry!
What arose out of that day is the understanding of the magic of giving, of loving that is the Spirit of Christmas. That is the spirit of Santa Claus. So if anyone tries to tell you that your belief in Santa is marginal or a cruel hoax, just understand that they, sadly, are not acquainted with Father Christmas. They simply do not understand what the Spirit of Christmas is all about. And if you, personally, do not believe in Santa Claus, at least try to believe in Santa's cause. If you want to discover the Spirit of Christmas, just look into your abundance (which is not necessarily about buying gifts, but can be) and give of yourself where you know it will land in open arms. The magic is there.
Do you have a favorite Christmas (or Solstice or Kwanzaa or Hannukah or other celebration) memory? A surprise? A miracle? A cozy remembering? Drop a line in the comments or an email.
