Our Second Christmas Tradition involves Jesus and Santa Clause!

The true meaning of Christmas is God's great love and that of Jesus in that both were willing to send and be sent as a gift of tangible love to this world from Heaven above. Jesus came that we might live in truth and peace and follow in His footsteps.
So each year, we celebrate Jesus birthday and thank Him for loving us so much to come and physically live with us.

The other part of Christmas involves the music and lights, snowflakes and warm tea, Sam's homemade Pizza and games around the Christmas Tree, Papai's pipe and Mamae playing Christmas Carols. And yes along with all that is this jolly Ho! Ho! Ho! man that we see in nearly every store either as a toy or a person in costume. For our family he is just a happy part of the Christmas decorations.

So on Christmas Eve we make Papai's favorite cookies and give him a tall glass of milk together with lots of hugs and kisses. And then Mamae and Papai Santa dance and kiss by twinkling light of the Christmas Tree and warm fireplace after which all the children go quickly to bed while "visions of sugar plums dance in their heads".
