    Perfect perform you may have performed, this page is actually great with superb info. Time is God’s way of retaining every thing from occurring at once.

  • Your style is really unique in comparison to other people I’ve read stuff from. Thank you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just bookmark this site.

  • What adult with children beevlies that Santa exists? It *is* lying to your children to tell them about Satan, whoops, I mean Santa. People lie because they don’t have the Spirit of God in their lives to know any better.Christmas is not about Santa or presents or any tree that people gathered and worshipped last night without knowing the Lord Jesus Christ. The tree is idol-a-tree. People need Jesus. Christmas is about the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. But the lost world doesn’t want to hear that. Jesus is Lord. If Jesus is not your Lord you will be cursed with everlasting fire. If you lie (like telling your children there is a Santa Claus and having them realize you are a liar when they grow older to know the truth that Santa is a lie) you will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone (Revelation 21:8). I don’t want that for you. I want you to be blessed. You’re blessed if you hear the word of God and you keep it (Luke 11:28). To keep it means you take care not to violate it.You people better quit lying and get right with God. You can only do that when you turn to Him and then He will lead you to repentance. Once you repent then God will make you born again by the Holy Spirit and you will have the power of God in your life to overcome the urge to sin. Real Christians are grieved by what they see that people do in regards to Christmas. May God bless you.

    • It’s fun. It’s a game. It’s not a malicious lie. Nothing wrong with srtriing the imagination, particularly with an idea that brings such joy and excitement. In August we were bringing the kids to Disneyworld for the 1st time but kept it a secret for months, telling them we were going elsewhere. On the morning of the trip they were surprised. Am I a bad parent for lying to them about that surprise? How is that any different from Santa?I remember being delighted, waiting for the sound of reindeer hooves on the roof and looking out the window to catch a glimpse of a red glowing nose I am soooo glad my parents told me there was a Santa as believing in him is some of my fondest childhood holiday memories. I want to pass a little of that magic and tradition on to my kids, and this is a fun way when they’re young.I believe in the “spirit” of Santa that is, the joy and generosity that the symbol in the red suit and white beard represents. My kids will understand that someday. But while they are young, they are having fun believing a little more literally.

    • I have always bvleieed in the concept of Santa. Its not about the presents or whatever. The following excerpt is what reinforces my belief in “Santa Claus” I have to wonder why more people are not believers in Santa Claus”Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as LOVE and GENEROSITY and DEVOTION exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest BEAUTY and JOY. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished “The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world”

  • This happened to me LAST year expect in a different way. I had all my gifts wrapped and found out that my son was expecting Santa to bring him one specific certain toy. This was a toy I had already gotten him and was SO excited it was also on his Santa list! Even though I had gotten it and wrapped it in a package from my husband and I, on Christmas Eve I unwrapped it and made it from Santa (Santa doesn’t wrap his gifts!) because he seriously would have been heartbroken had he not seen it when he woke up the things we do as parents! Right?!

    • I hope it is not too cold to me in Finnish Lapland during the weitnr But anyway the landscape look great. Is it in Levi that they have the Slalom world cup every year in November?

    • Sip!Insya Allah Entrepreuneur lebih mulia dan terhormat..Tapi mitos d Indonesia sagnat kental dan mendarah daging bahwa, kesuksesan dsejajarkan dengan pendidikan. Padahal yang terpenting adalah sebesar apa kontribusi kita bagi dunia.

    • I refuse to tell my kids that Santa is real for sevrael reasons. First, because he’s not. I want my kids to trust me to always be honest. I also want to set an example for them by being honest. It may be fun for them to believe in Santa. But I would be really upset if they came home and told me they got straight a’s on their report card, then later they told me but mom, I only told you that because I wanted you to enjoy the day and be excited! I don’t see much o a difference. When I was a kid and found out that Santa wasn’t real, I was angry. Not because I cared if Santa exisited, but because my parents lied to me. I got in trouble for lying. Why should they be allowed to lie? I also won’t tell my kids that there is a Santa because I don’t want to put so much focus on presents. I believe that we give presents to others, weather they deserve them or not, as an example of how Jesus gave us a great gift that we don’t deserve. Sorry if this offends those of you who aren’t Christians. But honestly, we are talking about Christmas. God is kind of the whole point of Christmas. Some people say they tell their kids about Santa to get them to behave. Please. Have you ever really not given your kids presents because they were bad? Nope. I guess I just don’t see how believing in Santa could possibly be benificial. My kids are every bit as excited on Christmas morning as the kids who do believe in Santa. They love their gifts just as much as any other kid.And one more thing. You parents who do tell your kids there is a Santa, that’s your choice and I respect it. Please respect mine. And don’t get mad at my kids if they tell yours the truth. You’re only mad because you got caught lying. You feel bad that they’re disappointed, but they wouldn’t be if you hadn’t lied to them in the first place. I don’t encourage my kids to tell other kids. I tell them to just let them think what they want. But I won’t tell them to lie. So if they slip and tell your kid the truth, don’t get mad at them. I don’t get mad at your kids when they tell mine that Santa is real.
