My Santa said he didn't think I believe in him, but I do, I really do. I invite anyone who wants to share their thoughts with Santa to put them in this list.

Even though I understand English, writing it is a little bit harder, so I will do my best.

I do believe in Santa (a.k.a. St. Nicholas), and my kids believe too. For Christmas I will love to play any game from my wish list. They have been carefully selected. I know the list have different kind of games, and here’s why:

I love games that are a little heavy, those which have a playing time that it’s generally considered “too long”. I find them very interesting and they give me a lot of fun. But not too many people have them because of the same reason I love them. So receiving one of these games have some pros and con. Pro: I will be able to play it since it will be available in my group. Con: it won’t be played as much as other games may.

On the other hand, games that are a little more light have some advantage: they are popular, so they will get to be played a lot more than the other games, so I will enjoy it more times.

So Santa, you can decide which game to give me, knowing I will love anyone I receive.

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star

O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy Perfect Light


Santa?? You mean the guy Coca-Cola invented? No I don't believe in him, everybody knows that it is the Three Magic Kings who bring presents...

I don't know about all of that history stuff.

What I do know is that Santa is the dude who built an entire indoor jungle gym in our basement family room Christmas night when I was seven. You would need magic just to get that much lumber in the house without waking everyone up, let alone the hammering and nailing.

He is also the dude who leaves a handwritten note in a near-impossible to imitate style of script for my neice and nephew every year. He also is the employer of Rodger the Tech Elf who takes the phone calls on 25th while the man in charge is resting. How would they know to deliver the replacement RC car for my nephew to the fireplace at his grandmother's house when it was ready without magic?

Santa is also the dude who uses the same wrapping paper for evey present he has sent anyone in my family. I have never seen this pattern in the stores and yet every year for the last 36 years a present has come for every member of my family with the same paper. I used to think that my father was Santa Claus and that he bought a number of cases of this wrapping paper when I was a kid. This can't be true though because my father died 10 years ago and still the wrapping paper is the same. My niece and nephew are getting the same paper as well.

Santa may enlist a huge number of people to help him get the job done, but he's the guy that makes me think of my father when I see that same wrapping paper under the tree every year.

And that's magic.
