Is Santa Clause Real? Crazdwriter has a few words to say on this whole Claus question

Introduction

To all my fellow readers on hubpages.  Some of you may be familiar with a long time friend of mine named Crazdwriter on hubpages, as she was formerly known.  Anyways, its been a while since we've last saw her, and I know she's certainly missed here as she was truly one of site's best writers.  However, I recently received a letter from her asking me publish this on her behalf.  Naturally, I accepted as I thought it was an honor out of all the people she could have asked, she asked me.  However, I did have a condition.  My condition was that I would give her proper credit for this hub.  She said I didn't have to, but she only wanted to see it published.  However, I felt it was my obligation anyway to do so.  Sure, I could've claimed this beautiful poem under my own name, but that wouldn't be fair.  It's a beautiful poem, and I think it's only fair that Crazdwriter get full credit for this, as I would like to present this lovely poem by her, as it speaks volumes on the spirit kindness that exists within all of us.  

I hope you all enjoy reading this piece by her as much as I did.  Thanks again CW, and I hope you'll come by sometime to visit this hub, as I'm sure many will come to love it as much as I have. 

Is Santa Clause Real?

Is Santa Claus real? So many people have asked this question, mostly kids, and well it got me thinking. Santa Claus IS real. He may be a happy old man who gives toys just once a year in the dead of night with the help of his elves and reindeer. But that isn’t why he is real. The man himself may not be real but his spirit is in each one of us every day and every night.

Santa is a symbol mostly of hope, love, and giving. His spirit of each of these are present in each human being who takes the time to look at life, cherish it, and share their love of life with others. His spirit is in each human being who takes time out of his or her life to give other people not only hope but also give them gifts. And give gifts that mean something to that person, like feeding the poor, building homes for those who have never had a house to call their own, and those who give toys to the children with nothing. Or even when you see something you know someone would like and give it as a gift to a family member or a friend on a whim. Or just give a small gift to a complete stranger who you happen to pass on the road or have seen a few times and just want to show that you appreciate their being alive. Or even more importantly if you give something even more special than a gift that you can hold in your hand; the gift of your time.

So is Santa Claus real? Look in the mirror and ask yourself this question, especially if you have done anything that Santa Claus himself would do and be proud to do. Look in the mirror and ask yourself what can I do to shine like Santa, to give and to show others that Santa Claus is real through yourself. Look in the mirror and ask yourself how can I show others that they themselves are also Santa Claus and that they should live their lives being proud of who they are and to let Santa shine through by their actions.

So I ask you again is Santa Claus real?

Your welcome, and thank you for stopping by. Yeah, I liked her a lot too on here. It kind of saddens me that she no longer publishes on here, but I'm glad that she allowed me the honor to publish this for her. Hopefully, she'll come back to this hub every now and then to see how well received it is. As I'm sure many will love to read it.
