The magic of Christmas for kids
Christmas is by far the most expected and magical holiday for kids. They have sent the letter for Santa to the post office, days or even months ago. Most of the letters contain a wish list for toys and other stuff. Of course that letters written by boys are different then the ones written by girls. Girls are usually writing longer and more polite letters and they are often asking gifts for other people. In the end they are all waiting for the old man with the white long beard, dressed in red clothes, to come by the chimney. For some kids the name is Santa Claus, for others He is Christ Kind (Christchild), Father Christmas or Saint Nicholas. They all represent one single person, very kind and carrying, who’s bringing all kinds of presents, toys and candies. He carries a bag full of gifts for children around the world and delivers them in one night, the magic night of Christmas.
Santa has a long journey for this evening and he is making the preparations until the last moment so he can assure that he’s not forgetting a single child. Of course he has his own assistance. The elves are opening every letter and depending on children’s behavior the gifts are being distributed. The kids are categorized naughty or nice and of course they know who’s been one way or another.
Santa has started his ride early in the morning with his flying reindeers. Maybe some of you even remember the names of: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, the younger one but also the leader of the team. They say that when Santa wants to leave his office for delivering gifts he whistles and calls every reindeer by his name and they come pulling the sleight more rapid than eagles.
Every year before setting off, Santa has a message for children around the world and the thing he is asking for this year is for kids to treat one another as equals, make friends and support one another. Well, kids, I am sure that you will listen to what Santa has to say and you will do your best to please him. And you know what kids? Not only will you listen to Santa, but your parents too. Christmas is the time when everybody should be a little more understanding and forgiving, more careful and calm. And if you ask me about gifts or whishes for Christmas, of course I would say that I have mine too. I have sent my letter to Santa or Christchild, Father Christmas or Saint Nicholas and I am sure it will be taking care of.
As we already said in a previous article Christmas is the time when humanity celebrates the birth of Jesus and there are more and more non-Christian countries that have adopted many aspects of the holiday. Therefore when we say “Merry Christmas” we address to so many people on this planet and we are happy to do that. Enjoy the carols our dear friends and the time spent with your dear ones, be happy and thankful and try to bring a smile on the faces of the ones that are not as lucky as you are. Before ending this article I would like to make a confession. We, the team of MyTravelStudio, believe in the magic of Christmas therefore we are looking forward for this evening to come. In the mean time we are trying to follow our customs so that the predominant smell in our house will be of “sarmale” and the Christmas tree. In the evening we will all gather around the tree, sing some carols and wait to see what Santa has brought us.
And another very important thing before finishing, we would like to thank for the picture we used here, to all those nice people that published the photographs on the internet.
Merry Christmas our dear friends!
