How to Get a Letter from Santa, Even if You’re Not a Kid

Christmas is indeed a magical time of the year, and it’s not only because of the beautiful weather. The celebration of the birth of the Holy Christ and the coming together of family and friends to celebrate this special occasion are also just a part of it. The most important highlight of Christmas is Santa delivering gifts on Christmas Eve. 

Frankly, who does not look forward to Him? Even the most downright practical individuals amongst us start believing in Santa during Christmas time. Getting and giving gifts and seeing the joy on the faces of our loved ones when they open up presents makes up for special memories each year. So do filling up stockings at night and just watching the skies in the hopes of spotting Santa.

The Special Letter

During Yuletide, the cherry on the cake is obviously to receive a special letter from Santa Claus himself. Whether you are a child or a grown-up, this one thing gives everyone great joy and brings a lot of cheer. That one and only letter from Santa truly completes Christmas as nothing else can. Individuals may or may not personally believe in Santa Claus, but his magic is definitely real.

Ever wondered how to get that special Santa Claus letter? If the birth of Christ, the Savior, is celebrated as the victory of good over evil, the letter from Santa is actual proof you have been good this past year and have not let your mean side overshadow your kind and generous nature.

How about that this letter from Santa was a unique gift you got at the end of the year for being good throughout? They say Santa keeps a tab on how we all have behaved and what good acts we have committed. Then he rewards us accordingly. So, believe in a little goodness, practice it, make people around you happy, and you get the cherished letter on Christmas to make your cup of joy overflow. Want to be on Santa’s good list? Do the following.

Remember to practice a little goodness every day.

You have been spotting a homeless individual on the corner of the street for some days now. Did you clean up your wardrobe and pack some old clothes for this person? Or did you tip the pizza delivery guy a little extra this monsoon? The weather was unforgiving that night. 

Even small, seemingly insignificant acts of kindness spread a lot of goodwill and positivity with them. They truly help multiply joy and generate hope. So, do your bit daily. It is really not necessary to be profound in your actions or undertake great big gestures of kindness. Small acts showing empathy and concern also go a long way. They speak volumes about you as a person and our human race collectively. 

Help a child cross the street. Feed a stray. Offer a dollar or a pound to someone who really needs it. Giving is a powerful agent of positivity and hope in itself. It is also known to benefit the giver spiritually.

Spreading Cheer

They say the best things in the world are free. It can’t be truer. Just a genuine and sincere smile can heal wounds and help generate warmth. Wish a stranger; a random ‘Good Morning’ actually makes it one when coupled with a bright smile and a wave. Express concern and empathy. Enquire after a colleague’s mother’s health. 

How is she doing now? Visit a stranger in a hospital with flowers. Or just simply sit by their side for some time. An acquaintance is on the verge of tears. Can you just listen to them and help them vent it all out? 

All these above are actions intended to reduce grief and lighten the burden of others. These also help spread good vibes around you. You will be held in very high regard because of these acts. Not to mention that expressing empathy and lessening the pain of others actually has a cathartic effect on your psyche too. So, go ahead and brighten the world, one cheerful little act at a time.

Channeling Our Inner Santa

Being Santa is not merely about red robes and a thick white beard. Santa is in our inner psyches, a part of our spirit whenever we do good outside in this world. Ensure the Santa in you is well heard and quite visible to others. Surprise visits full of joy and the abundance of kindness make everyone’s day. So do them. 

By giving gifts, Santa provides hope, joy, and a pleasant surprise to children and grown-ups the world over. Be someone’s Santa today. The term ‘Secret Santa’ is popular for a reason. Just ensure that whether the person standing before you is a friend, acquaintance, or rank stranger, they get a pleasant little surprise this festive season.

Being a messenger of peace, love, and joy throughout.

You might be a little kid or a grown adult. If you have done all the above, people this year have looked upon you as a beacon of hope and positivity the entire time. Being good also entails not being mean. Were you successful in controlling your previous anger outbursts? Have you been less mean and rude this year? 

We all have some demanding times and occasions when we lose control, but not acting upon our hurtful impulses is key to maintaining and continuing good behavior. You truly become a messenger of peace, love, and joy by doing all of this. People look forward to having you as an important part of their lives. They respect and cherish you as a person. That, in itself, is a gift enough, right?

Santa might be mythical, but his magic isn’t. He will surely get the word about all your acts of kindness and generosity this year. And he will not fail to contact you on Christmas Eve. So, here’s to that special letter from Santa! Don’t forget to get in touch with us if you need some help!

Merry Christmas.
