Santa; Yes world there is a Santa Claus…

catch-santaI tried to catch Santa once! It was a goal of mine as a little tyke. I had to prove to everyone that Santa was real and that no matter what, there was a Santa…

Santa is real and I think telling people who want a Santa, is akin to destroying Christmas. Santa is in the heart and Santa does not represent material items to me. Santa represents, God and Jesus to me…

I just look at him like a different messenger for God. Now I realize that we have commercialized Santa, but then we have a commercialized God even more. Santa is a one day a year proposition and God is at the very least a every Sunday, money-maker and many people make that Wednesday, Saturday and I have seen the plate passed asking for money, 7 days a week…

Neither one is right and moral, just that one is a lessor of the evils. I can not help that we have created a world based on greed and it has taken over all our lives including religion…

So I tried to catch Santa as a little tyke and that is what makes me laugh as I see this photo about catching Santa. I was the cat…

Coffee-iconI would even get up in the middle of the night and check on my trap. I remember eating the cookies one Christmas and the milk was hot. That did not go over well with me. I like cold milk. Then I got worried that Santa would miss his treat and I tried to get more cookies and such. I knocked the cookie jar off the counter and broke everything. That messed up that trap. Why I even had a rope around the plate of cookies and milk. To be honest, I was not sure how that would trap him, but at 4 years old, you just knew that cowboys roped things and it had to work; Right?

It all started about how to catch Santa when I was around three and I watched my parents put out cookies and milk. In the morning the cookies were almost all gone and the milk was definitely gone. I remember that I was so excited, “Santa was here! Santa was here!” I screamed and that was the start of the plans to catch Santa. For if he ate the food, he could be caught; Right?

That was the same at how I set up rabbit traps and that I did all the time. So it was no surprise to me when I never caught Santa, I never caught any rabbits either…

Then in the same token, I never have seen or caught Jesus and or God. In fact there are many mythical wonders that I never caught and saw first hand…

But that never stopped me from believing and destroying people’s spirit about things as God, Christmas and a thousand other things, is just downing life to the max. We have such few real treats in life, that we deserve a bit of imagination and dreams…

“Yes world there is a Santa Clause!”

I just never caught him yet and when I do, I will let you see him…
