Joyeux Noel... enfant de l'amour!
"I am no longer a baby, I no longer believe in Santa Claus.
Adults don't believe in Santa Claus and neither do I.
It's not true. It's only to amuse children."
Well dear little girl, I have to say that I still believe in Santa Claus...
Yes, you heard well, I still believe in Santa Claus.
I want to believe in Santa Claus forever, the kind old man with a white beard
who charmed me and lived in my dreams as a little girl
This happy and generous man, with a big pot belly,
who laughed all the time with his big bag full of gifts
Yes, I always want to believe in Santa Claus.
I still believe in Santa Claus.
Because the true Santa Claus doesn't always bring dolls or toys,
he often wants children to undersatnd, and adults too,
this great truth, listen to me:
The greatest gift of all, is the first reason to celebrate Christmas,
the first, the greatest, the most beautiful gift, is the gift of love!
The gift of love, you can give it, presnt it in many different ways, for example:
The gift of one's self; the gift of one's self is to bring one's prescence,
to be beside someone who is alone on Christmas Day,
like a sick person, a disabled person, an abandoned old man, an orphan,
and all those deprived in life, who are hungry and thirsty for love and tenderness.
To share one's happiness, you know, the power of happiness is so great.
There are so many people who are waiting for this exchange, this sharing of love.
All these people still believe in Santa Claus like me.
Perhaps you can be Santa Claus and the gifts can be your prescence,
your smile, your love, your friendship.
If we are the children of hope, Santa Claus can bring the happiness
and even the love and it will last longer than a doll.
Little 8 year old girl who no longer believes in Sana Claus
and you, the adult who has no time, who feels really insignificant
in this story of Santa Claus and of gifts, let me tell you this:
Christmas is the day of love that we remember,
And for those unfortunates without this memory,
there will always be hope, dreams and illusions
and it is at these moments that we need to believe in Santa Claus
We have recieved so much from God, it's so good to comfort others and to share our joy.
It's a real happiness to give rise to a smile and since Santa Claus' gifts
aren't always wrapped, we sometimes need to close our eyes
and open our hearts in order to contemplate and understand them.
On Christmas Day, if you want to sing,
if your heart is beating really quickly and if you want to laugh, to have fun,
and if you see some adults shake hands, and even kiss each other,
if you feel strange inside, if you have the impression that you are flying,
Santa Claus will have brought to your house, the gift of love.
Take care of it, this gift can last forever, it never burns itself out
and you can share it with those who need it.
Merry Christmas.... child of love.
