I swear I won't post any more heart warming stories

but this one really did warm my reptilian heart.

Best example of laugh and cry: "Santa was worried he might not make it this year so he called in the Marines."

Thanks to ~*Susan Adrian~* for the heads up.

that story totally reminds me of myself.

as a young Muslim kid, I was often brainwashed by my school teachers that Santa was real. I always demanded to my parents that we should celebrate Christmas, but we never did. I so badly wanted a Christmas tree, but my parents refused to buy a tree, so I made one out of Mom's tall potted plant... hahahaha. how repulsive.

I LOVE DaMomma. She's got some great posts if you have time to browse her archives.

That is some really great writing, right there. Warmed my cynical little heart as well.

Lovely reading recommendation. I worked as a nanny for three years with some incredibly privileged children and it was always a wonderful task to explain the meaning of giving during the holidays.

That was a really lovely story. It reminds us of the true meaning of the season.

It made me stop and think about how blessed I have been.

I'll also salute the marines. What an awesome group of men and women.

I loved this! Thanks for the link. :) Santa won't be visiting us this year so it's nice to hear Christmas stories.
