With Christmas rolling around you can’t help but think of Christmas songs, movies, and shows. Everyone somewhere deep down has a secret love for Christmas, whether they like it or not. Even though I wish that people would wait till farther in December to start with the Christmas festivities, I still do have some favorite songs and movies.
Ever since I was a little kid I loved the movie The Polar Express. I was always big into the whole “Santa Claus” type deal. I still just like the idea of him and the feeling that you get on Christmas day when you wake up and see the tree with all of the presents below it. The Polar Express really gets me in the mood for Christmas. Just the way they take a kid that doesn’t believe in Santa and they take him to the North Pole and show him around. It instills the fact that you don’t have to just be young to have Christmas spirit. Yeah I know Santa isn’t real but it’s still great to convince the kids that he is and their reaction to presents from Santa. I think it shows there is still hope for the ever-fading idea of Santa.
I think with the way that times are changing, a lot of parents are losing the will to try and get their kids to believe in Santa. To me I think that it is a great way to keep your kid active in the Christmas spirit and get them to think outside of the box on things. It helps them be more open-minded toward things. It almost helps them accept things that they don’t see, and learn that you don’t have to see something to believe in it. Christmas time is to me the best time with the food, the family aspect, and the gift giving. Everyone should see how much of an impact Christmas can have on everyone, and just put everyone in a better mood.
