If you ask a five-year-old child, “who is Santa?” They would say he’s a jolly old fellow. He wears a red suit and comes once a year to give good children toys. He’s very fond of milk and biscuits so you have to leave him some every Christmas Eve. Also you have to leave a carrot for his reindeer. Santa is plump, happy, and funny he has a long white curly beard and he wears a red suit with white fluffy trimmings around the seams.
He only comes and gives presents to the good children and to the bad children he gives a lump of coal. That’s who Santa is.However, if you ask an adult, who is Santa? They would tell you a somewhat different story. Santa is a fictional character that was thought up years ago by someone who is unnamed; he is a man parents tell their children about but he doesn’t really exist. Every Christmas Eve parents put their children to bed early, eat the biscuits and drink milk their children left out for Santa, put the carrot back with the others in the kitchen and lay out the toys in the living room on the sofa for the children to find on Christmas morning.But Santa is real.
Santa is an ordinary man picked up off the street. Santa is a human and like every other human Santa dies. Therefore throughout the ages there have been hundreds of Santa’s, every one of them doing exactly the same job: making children happy. Just before a Santa dies another one is picked from a shopping centre or a swimming pool and therefore the world is never without a Santa. Santa lives in the North Pole just like the legend tells us and he really does wear a red suit and has a long, curly, white beard, again just like the legend tells us.Santa lives in a house with angels. Children who have been taken from the world of the living long before it was their time.
Children who didn’t have their fair share of happy Christmas’. Children who deserve a little more happiness. They live in a world where everything is fun and all year their happiness is stored up until one special night. CHRISTMAS. A little happiness is taken from them each day and they’re having so much fun they don’t even notice a little disappearing. The happiness is stored in sacks in a big storeroom all year until there is enough to make the whole world happy!The StoryThe next Santa could be anybody! Even someone you know! Santa is just lifted off the street and taken to the North Pole through a magic porthole by a man called Mr Tuppit.
Santa is put through training by the angels on how to be jolly and “santalike” then he is given the costume and whisked off to shopping centre grotto somewhere in the world to meet children. Santa is always brought to meet children because there is hundreds of imitation Santa’s and this way when a parent tells their son or daughter they are going to meet Santa they’re not lying. They can’t tell where the real Santa is going to be so this way they really can say “that was Santa” without feeling bad, because face it, it might have been.Santa then, on Christmas Eve, gets in his sleigh and soars through the sky.
In the back of the sleigh are red sacks with white fluffy trimmings to match his suit. The sacks however are not full of presents, oh no. They’re full of happiness, all the happiness that was taken from the angels throughout the year. Enough to make the whole world happy! The happiness is called the “Christmas spirit.
” You see Santa doesn’t really deliver presents he delivers the Christmas Spirit. Parents brought the presents into Christmas and Santa brought the spirit. There is a Santa you see, but no one seems to get him right, well, now you know. So I guess in a way, both adults, and children were wrong about Santa.
