Why Do They Have the Christmas Stuff out This Early?

Important Santa questions for the off-season.

It may be the off-season, but Santa is here and ready to answer your questions:

Why do they have the Christmas stuff out this early?

Not yet but soon! Studies show that retailers have followed the exact same patterns in displaying holiday merchandise for years, yet each year we think it has never been out so early.

I saw Santa at the grocery store. 

Well of course you did. Santa loves to cook and wherever he travels he and Mrs. C often cook for family and friends. Did you know that Santa tries to stay healthy all year and you may see him hiking, backpacking, riding his bike, fishing, or relaxing on the lake?

Are you the real Santa?

There is only one real Santa and you will know for sure if you ask him and he says "what do you think?". Santa has many ambassadors to help him during the year but even when they are together the real Santa prefers to remain anonymous just as the fourth century Saint Nicholas of Myra did.

I don't believe in Santa anymore.

That sometimes happens when we get older and the magic and innocence of our youth diminishes. I can still hear the sleigh bells ring every year. They ring with Joy, Hope, Faith, Charity & Love. Do you have a younger brother, sister, or friend? Help them feel as special as you did your first Christmas. You can be Santa's ambassador every day.

Santa & Commercialism take away from the birth of Christ.

If anything they are a constant reminder to me of my love for God & He for me. Santa is the stuff of legends who's acts of love and kindness come from the great story of Saint Nicholas. Having attended church groups in the magical red suit I can say for sure that it's purpose is to give and take nothing away.

I saw Santa today at a car show in Dacula and that twinkle in his eye was there, bright as Christmas morning!

Jazz Man you are correct. Since the Elves only fly on that one special night Mrs C fixed Santa up with the Model A Ford. I hope you said hello we would have been glad to chat. You can find a link to my fb @ www.daculasanta.com
