Random stories: A letter from Santa

Hi Mike,

It's Christmas. I hope everything is well with you. 

Although everyone believe I do not exists, with people thinking I am a commercial gimmick for higher sales, you know existence does not equate to being real.

You have been wondering about the spirit of Christmas, and is counting your blessings. You also wonder if the reindeers are actually too fat to fly anymore. Thank you for your concern, they are fine, just that no one puts up Christmas socks for me to leave a gift anymore, and even if they do, the homes are all of tight security now, CCTV, police alarm. Not that I do not have a way of disarming these, but I just no longer feel welcome.

I started giving, hoping that people will understand the joy of giving. 

Alas, my intention while pure, is misconstrued as a commercial gimmick nowsaday. Also, it is never my intention for anyone to feel stress over what gifts to buy. Giving does not have to be restricted to real presents, just like existence does not mean it's real. 

You have ask yourself, what have you give this year. You start to think in the line of charity, the amount you have given and the beneficiaries that you would have helped. That is wonderful. 

I am glad you move on further to ask if you have gave love to those around you, gave time to those who need it, and gave your best in whatever you do.

It is clear, you find something missing, and nope, that cannot be given. It is with you, you are holding it without realizing it.

Stop counting your blessings. Give them away. 

Have a Merry Christmas.
Non-existence Santa.

  3. Haha, I don't even think I have much of a break... This yr is unlike other years, because usually around this time I'll be dying of boredom and lacking in income. But this yr, quite Huat for me, even during holidays it's like I'm operating at normal pace. Good and bad lah.. But I need a break, so I cancelled almost all lessons this week.

    I'm so not ready for the new work year lol

  6. Hi Sillyinvestor

    The best part about Christmas festive is about giving and sharing. We see that almost with all the gifts exchange between friends and colleagues. We can go one better to give our blessings to those who may be suffering at this point of time in any parts of the world. That would give a meaning to what xmas is all about.

    1. Hi B,

      Personally, I am not a Christmas person, although the concept of giving is somewhat similar to the concept of giving hongbao in new year, I find it rather "commercialised"

      When you hear about "market rate of hongbao", "returning the favour", it kinda of suck the air out of me. Why wait till Christmas to give? My wife will pull my ear LOL. But, anytime she needs anything, if it is not unreasonable, I give, why wait till christmas?
