Gifting Santa

Just sent a text

to Santa asking what

does he want for Christmas?

You know, he’s always

been a charming and

jovial gent.

Hard-working too!

To keep the elves

from slacking is

hard work – just sayin’.

Plus, the reindeer need

tending and then there’s

always sleigh maintenance

due to high mileage.

It’s a never-ending gig

for poor Santa, but

according to him,

the rewards are many.

He’s quite well-traveled,

been to the moon and back

more than he can count.

Speaks ho ho ho in

numerous languages.

Of course, most fulfilling

is the act of giving

and caring.

So, I queried Santa –

what does he want for

Christmas in 2021?

I expected a lengthy

list like a new Santa

suit and hat, more cookies

and milk at his stops,

perhaps some nog

with a nip, or maybe

even a new GPS!

But hear this, my friends!

He replied “I want goodwill

and world peace”.

I smiled and

I thought to myself

only if…

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”-Calvin Coolidge

  1. How a handful of baddies can destroy world peace. I pray Santa gets what he wants, good for all of us. Nice poem, Eugi.


  2. Your site Eugenia is one of beauty as I revisit your beautiful blog and feel right at home among your wonderful offerings ..
    Indeed, if only the gifts of thankfulness of giving and compassion, of care and respect, of tolerance and kindness were gift wrapped within each human soul every day of the year.. Instead of only being unwrapped for a short period of time in this special season..

    I have a feeling we all may be needing to look at those internal gifts we need to unwrap now upon Humanity as we share out the Love and Joy of what it is to be Human and share our open hearts..

    Much love dear friend.. Love and Blessings… ❤


    1. Thank you, Sue! I agree, kindness should be spread all year and not just during a special day or season. It’s good to see you back and I always enjoy your positive vibes. Sending hugs! ❤️


  3. Eugenia,

    Excellent quote and so true! I loved the poem! Santa’s wish list is the hardest of all Christmas presents for him to leave. That must come from within each person, so if everyone looked within to bring forth those redeeming qualities then this world would change for the better. Thanks!
