'a Christmas gift from Santa' by teddy hariyanto


Things have changed which make people sad
Things have closed which make people angry!
Yet those things that make us sad or angry can only make us stronger, because none of us expected or wanted to live this way.


Despite this year being a very rough time for everyone due to the pandemic, don't let it dull our Christmas celebrations.


The world has a common wish...
Let the dark clouds of pandemic fade away and let us be able to resume our regular lives. 
Let our positivity and strength fight the challenges it  poses.


Think about happy things and your heart will fly on wings.
Let the magic of Christmas conspire to gladden your heart and fill every desire.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
