What Christmas means to Kids
Source: Car Donations for Kids Date: December 4th, 2010
If you could, would you relive your childhood? Do you remember what Christmas meant to you? To most children, Christmas is the most important day of their lives. Millions of children across the world imagine what Santa is going to give them for Christmas. They strain their minds to determine the logistics of Santa visiting every house across the world in one night. This process taught children to just have faith. Sometimes life asks us to have faith in God and others. Without faith, society would be full of paranoia. The concept of Christmas and Santa is brilliant. It teaches our youth that life will reward you for being a responsible person. Children need to follow the rules of life correctly and the rewards will come. This ideal helps children grow into adults that understand that hard work gets you pay increases and a rewarding life.
Faith can be defined as trusting others and realizing that life will turn out to be ok. Many aspects of our daily life are out of our control and we must believe that everything will work itself out. Our faith is tested everyday. We have faith that the drivers on the road drive responsibly and that our child’s teachers help them learn to be outstanding citizens. At times, life can disappoint us, but that is where faith comes in. It gives us hope to continue to strive to reach our daily goals. Faith makes us believe that our peers will help us reach happiness. That is the true message of God. Help others and they will help you!
According to the Coalition of the Homeless, 1.5 million children are homeless in America. Nothing will test your faith more than being homeless. Thousands of children die each year from being homeless. Children are forced to sleep in temperatures of -10 degrees. Children have died from the flu that could have been easily treated. Unfortunately, their parents can not always help their children. Shelters are sometimes full and they have no where else to go. Some shelters have been forced to close due to a lack of funding from donations.
Far too many children are never given the chance to experience the true joys that Christmas can bring. They never are able to feel the nervous excitement of waiting for Santa to drop off presents. How can homeless children have faith when they have nothing but sadness surround them?
