Ten Days Before Christmas - Santa Claus or Kris Kringle


Ten Days Before Christmas - Santa Claus or Kris Kringle

10 Days na lang at Christmas na. Kaya gusto kong mag countdown by counting the things that we make and do during this Holiday seasons. My third item is Santa Claus. Sino nga ba si Santa Claus?


Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Oh! You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why:

Santa Claus is coming to town!

He's making a list,
He's checking it twice,
He's gonna find out
who's naughty or nice.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

He sees you when you're sleeping,
He knows when you're awake.
He knows when you've been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

Ito ang madalas na babala ng mga magulang sa mga anak lalo na tuwing Christmas seasons. Syempre nga naman wala kang gift if you are naughty. So you have to be nice.

Sa ating murang kaisipan ay namulat na sa atin ang imahe ni Santa Claus na mataba, may puting balbas at buhok, naka pula ang kasuotan, suot ang malaking boots, may dala-dalang sakong puno ng regalo. Nakasakay sya sa kanyang sleight at dumadaan sa chimney para mag lagay ng mga regalo.

Lagi rin tayo nagsasabit ng medyas at nagbabakasakali na maglagay ng gift si Santa. Kahit minsan ay hindi nalagyan ng gift ang medyas kong nakasabit kaya tinigilan ko na rin. hohohohehe! Makikita mo ang excitement ng mga bata paggising nila sa umaga at umaasang may regalo na nilagay si Santa.

Alamin natin kung meron nga ba talagang Santa Claus or ito'y isang imagination lamang.

Early Christians church remembered St. Nicholas of Myra as Santa Claus. For his help to the poor, Nicholas is the patron saint of pawnbrokers; the three gold balls traditionally hung outside a pawnshop symbolize the three sacks of gold. People then began to suspect that he was behind a large number of other anonymous gifts to the poor, using the inheritance from his wealthy parents. After he died, people in the region continued to give to the poor anonymously, and such gifts were still often attributed to St. Nicholas. source wikipedia

The figure of Santa Claus first begins to show up among the Pennsylvania Dutch in the mid 1820s in the form of Kris Kringle, or as he was also known, Belsnickle. Belsnickle is a derivative of the German "Pelz-nickle", which means "Nicholas in Furs ".

Belsnickle would travel the Pennsylvania countryside ringing his bell looking for good children to give out his small gifts of cakes and nuts to. If Belsnickle came across a child who had not been behaving in the past year, he would warn the child to be good or else he might give them a smack with his rod. source stcharleschristmas.com

Once upon a time, I believed in Santa. Actually, hanggang ngayon naman naniniwala pa rin ako na may Santa although my image of him has changed through the years.

Maligayang Pasko po, Jess.

Nebz- Ok lang na magkaroon tayo ng magandang alala ni Santa nung small pa tayo. Tama ka dyan na lahat tayo ay nagbabago sa pagkakakilala habang nagmamature. kaya nga sabi nila ang Christmas ay para sa mga kids.
