Some of my most fond memories originated through my childhood. As I have grown into an adult, I can see how my early beliefs have molded the person I have become. Now, I am a mother and know the beliefs I support will mold my children for their future. With every breath in my body, I believe in Santa Claus. Although many people would try to disprove the belief in Santa Claus, I believe in him because he symbolizes the pure innocence of children, brings joyful thoughts to people around the world, and allows children to believe in something whole heartedly.

Although many people would try to disprove the belief in Santa Claus, I believe in Santa Claus because he symbolizes the pure innocence of children. The children of today’s world are growing up so fast. With a little bit of help from parents and adults around the world, children can continue to believe in Santa Claus. The belief of Santa Claus is so beautiful. Santa Claus symbolizes how innocent our children are. As a mother of four, I hope my children will enjoy their childhood as long as possible.

Although many people would try to disprove the belief in Santa Claus, I believe in Santa Claus because he brings joyful thoughts to people around the world. Christmas is a joyful time of the year. We all know the birth of Jesus Christ is the true meaning of Christmas, but Santa Claus has become a symbol of Christmas around the world. Santa Claus can be found in department stores everywhere at Christmas time. The site of Santa Claus brings happiness to children. He has a joyous effect on people. Everyone benefits from surrounding themselves with jolly people.

Although many people would try to disprove the belief in Santa Claus, I believe in Santa Claus because he allows children to believe in something whole heartedly. I can remember the anticipation of Santa’s arrival. I would stare out my window for hours looking to see a sleigh dash across the sky. Now, as a mother, I can enjoy those same moments with my children. There is not a Christmas Eve go by we are not looking for Rudolph’s nose to dash across the sky. To add to their joy, we leave oats on the front lawn for the reindeer. The belief in Santa lasts all year long. To believe in something whole heartedly is a gift all people should learn from.

Santa Claus adds to the joy of all people, big and small. It is fun to rediscover the inner child we all have deep down. If you are having a bad day in December, take a trip to the mall. Find the big jolly guy dressed in red and climb up on his lap. For that moment, be a child again and feel the magic of Santa Claus. The magical feeling is something I never want to lose.
