Who is Santa?

St. Nicholas was a Christian bishop who helped the needy. After his death, the legend of his gift-giving grew. St. Nicholas transformed into the legendary character called Santa Claus, who brings Christmas presents to children around the world.

This year there have been some unique special “Santas” that have gone beyond the normal duties. I am talking about the mall Santas that don’t get paid. The Santas that spend hours with children crying or rambling about what they want for Christmas. Those Santas.

First we had the Santa who actually got down on the floor to bond and to connect with the boy who had autism. https://gma.yahoo.com/why-santas-lying-floor-christmas-photos-153820228–abc-news-parenting.html

Then we had the Santa who signed, used American Sign Language, to communicate with this little girl. http://www.today.com/kindness/signs-christmas-mall-santa-uses-sign-language-speak-young-girl-t60111

Finally, we have the Santa who listens and counsels this little boy with autism. http://www.today.com/kindness/signs-christmas-mall-santa-uses-sign-language-speak-young-girl-t60111

Three amazing Santas who take the role of Santa seriously who use their special gifts of connecting to bond with these special kids. That to me is what Christmas s all about. These men are Saints in their own way.santa_floor_lb_151202_16x9_992
