    Merry Christmas!


     John Lennon / Yoko Ono  -  Happy Christmas  (War Is Over)

     So this is Xmas
     And what have you done?
     Another year over
     And a new one just begun.
     And so this is Xmas
     I hope you have fun
     The near and the dear one
     The old and the young.

     A very Merry Xmas
     And a happy New Year,
     Let's hope it's a good one
     Without any fear. 

     And so this is Xmas
     For weak and for strong
     For rich and the poor ones
     The world is so wrong.
     And so happy Xmas
     For black and for white
     For yellow and red ones
     Let's stop all the fight.

     A very Merry Xmas
     And a happy New Year,
     Let's hope it's a good one
     Without any fear.

     War is over, if you want it
     War is over now...   (ter)

        Not long ago I received this letter from Alexia, my granddaughter.


    Dear Grandma,
      Some of my friends say there is no Santa Claus. Dad doesn't listen to me and Mum says: I don't know.
      Please Grandma, tell me the truth. Is there a Santa Claus? Shall I write a letter this year? 


    my answer:

     Yes, Alexia there is a  , your friends are wrong and you will write your letter.

     Start the letter with a greeting: 'Dear Santa'.
     It's polite to ask him how he's doing, if he has his  ready, if the have finished all the .
     Then tell him you have been very good all year and ask him to bring you the presents you wish:
     a and a I suppose.
     Your brothers are too young to write so you should also ask a for Thomas and a for Bob.

     Don't forget to thank Santa for being so generous.

     Write a closing such as 'Love' and sign your name.

     On help your father to decorate the with ornaments:
      , , .
     Hang above the and set several on the mantel.
    I think it would be a good idea to leave some lumps of sugar for and the .

    Santa Claus will be happy to see such a nice place and will give you the presents.

    And don't worry, Alexia. Santa Claus does exist.
    It's like fairies
    Images, you have never seen them but that's no proof that there are not fairies.
    I'm sure Santa Claus will live for ever.
    A thousand years from now he will continue to make glad the hearts of children.
