Dear Santa, here goes my grown-up Christmas list 2021
“Christmas is just like a day in the office. You do all the work and the fat guy in a suit gets all the credit.”
Christmas is so much more challenging as you get older. It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year but with the long shopping for gifts list, endless attending and hosting of social events, drama-filled family reunions, chaotic holiday travel, the harsh winter weather and not to mention the cost of it all… it’s hard to be cheerful.
So, before I get on my fancy Christmas anxiety, just once I’d like to be a kid again, sitting on Santa’s lap and sharing to him what I want for Christmas.
No more COVID, or variants Delta, Omicron, and God knows what’s comes next.
No more misinformation surrounding covid, covid vaccines, 2020 election results, etc.
No more supply chain disruption.
Smoother air travel, especially during the holiday season.
Student loan forgiveness or extension of pause on student loan payments.
Comprehensive immigration reform to solve the labor crisis.
Rent control and more affordable housing.
Childcare subsidies to working class families.
Lower gas prices.
For the Supreme Court not to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
Humanitarian aid for Afghanistan.
Now, Santa may just be a myth, but I believe that we are all Santa in our own little way. And while some of us do Santa-like actions every day of the year, the holiday season and the trying times are great reminders for us to do more — to be more generous, share more of our gifts and talents and spread good cheer to as many people as possible. At the same time be child-like, believe in something that we don’t see. For me, it’s believing that better things will come and that 2022 will have something good for everyone (but you have to do your part… that’s to be nice).
