Saturday Night Christmas Music...12.22.07

Click the title: Judy Garland singing "Have yourself a merry little Christmas"
I miss the Little One Days....when the little ones wait for Santa, when they still Believe.
When the cookies and egg nog were made and left out for Santa, and the Fireplace was swept clean , and checked with a flashlight.When the stocking was hung with great care. And questions were asked " Is he scared of Dogs?", "What if it is foggy and he gets lost ?" ( Seattle)...."What if I was not good enough?"

And staying up late and trying to quietly and carefully wrap and put things together, while cursing foreign instructions and old tools....watching Ralphie One More Time ( for the zillionith time).

Do you need a laugh ? Click the Title on the post below, and have a laugh it is time for more Celebrity Bric-Brac Theater just for Christmas...Enjoy.

Oh but Enigma there is a Santa Clause, read this old newspaper article:

Dear Editor:

I am 8 years old. Some of my friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says "If you see it in The Sun it's so."

Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia O'Hanlon


Your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

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.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see.

No Santa Claus! Thank God, he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

I'm sitting here trying to catch up with my friends and listening to Joan Sutherland on my Messiah cd.

I drag it out every Christmas season.

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours.

My best to you and your son!

Here's hoping some sort of positive change starting next year! ; )

It has become a habit to give my inner child free rein for the holidays. Santa Claus is real. Rudolph will find his way through the frog. All the elves will snuggle down for a good rest after building all those toys. Most important, there will be time to believe that the world and its people can hope for peace and finally have it delivered in the New Year.

Hi enigma! I left a Christmas gift for you on my blog, check it out when you have time.

Merry Christmas!

Gary said...

Yeah me too...but I have friends with little ones and I hover on Christmas :)

And mine are 17 and 20 so we can sit up with a glass of wine and talk about life, that's fun too.

Best to you for 2008. May it be kind, loving and generous to you.

Nurse and WS readers, I suggest you take a look at: It is written by a lady in the wilds of Wyoming. She adopted a wild coyote pup after its parents were killed. She posts marvelous photos and short stories about the coyote and its friend, her kitten. Somehow it reminds me of the spirit of the Nurse's posts here, although its an entirely different subject. The photos alone are worth the visit.
