I do. Even though the world tries to beat us down and make all cynical old codgers (well, eleven months out of the year, that's exactly what I am, so... Mission accomplished!), when this time of year rolls around, do you find yourself trying to find the brighter side? To me, that's what Santa is: A feeling in each of us that the world isn't the dark, depressing, oppressive place that it can seem sometimes. Santa is the spirit that makes us glad to be alive and happy to be with the ones we love. In short, Santa is the personification of the Christmas spirit. Some people get very down around Christmas time. To them I say -- Try to find a little Santa in yourself or those around you. This is a season of joy, not crass consumerism, which is can sometimes seem. Remember to be warm and treat others kindly and you will also come to personify the season. In other words, just be nice and treat other well -- Is that really so hard? I don't think so!
