On Santa, Business and Joy
Hello, this is Lourdes talking
I have just come out of Santa’s grotto at Pacific Place in Hong where I came to get my children photographed with Santa. I have to say that my state of mind has changed tremendously from the time I got through the entrance door to the time I came out.
But when I came out, I could not think of these things any more. I could just think of my son Javi’s joy for having been able to chat with Santa. His eyes where sparkling and the high pitch of his voice showed how a special treat this has been for him. Mommy, mommy, did you see that Santa also speaks Spanish??? Did you hear that his reindeers are parked at the roof of this building? Can we go to see them?
And I thought I probably only have a couple of years to go before his world of fantasy around Santa fades away. He did not even ask for a present. He was just happy he met Santa.
And I realised I should also enjoy this moment as a mother…Santa will not be the same when Javi is 20.
