Thoughts about the big day

Well, preparations well underway for the visit of the big man in red. Or green, if you prefer that imagery.

Father Christmas (or Santa Claus, or whomever) seems to appeal on such a visceral level - kindness without any expectation of reward, other than maybe a mince pie and a small drink.

And we perpetuate the story with our children whatever (generally) our own belief system, because it is so appealing - we so want out children to believe in the magic of someone being so selfless.
