#UnwrapChristmas

Santa Clause is coming to town,
riding on a sleigh 


And it takes us ages to realize that the Santa Clause delivering happiness is just us. In between receiving Christmas gifts to delivering them, we somewhere grew up. Few of us, like last year, tried to explore the unprecedented happiness that secret Santa can deliver by being a secret Santa to someone we might or might not know. 

Yes, the activity was fun. 

However, Christmas has always been more about spreading the joy. Christmas is about bidding goodbye to the year that has gone by, irrespective of how it was, and welcoming the next year with open arms. 



May you be kissed by warmth of the Winters!
May you accept the past gracefully!
May you embrace what is yet to come! 
May you drown yourself in His salvation!

May you find Grace, 
On this Christmas Day!

Merry Christmas!

Thank you Corinne for passing on the Christmas spirit. I pass it on to Shilpa :)

Also, if you too want to be someone's secret santa and spread smiles, kindly visit Divya Disha to know how you can help children who really need it.

I love the line about the fact that the Santa Claus is us! If we could all find our inner Santa, the world would be a better place, n'est ce pas?
