“Christmas is the spirit of giving. It’s about giving of yourself – and that’s the greatest thing that Santa can teach anyone. If you can give monetarily, great. If you see someone looking down, give them a hug! You never know whose day you’re going to brighten.
The biggest gift that you can always give is time. Giving of your time is the greatest gift you can give to anyone, especially a child. If you give your time and effort to a child, they will remember that for the rest of their lives.
Above all, the reason for the Christmas season is the birth of Christ. As God gave us his only son, Jesus, he gave us love. Through that sacrifice comes the spirit of giving. Giving should come from the heart, with love.”
-Santa, David Hood
