14 lessons we learn from the story of Santa Claus
A fat jolly older man with a white beard, wearing a red suit with white fur trim and a wide buckled belt, crowned with a stocking red hat cap, and white gloves, completing the look with black boots had captivated the children from ages. Yes, I am talking about Santa Claus, who comes with the famous Carol, “jingle bells.”
The Christmas celebration would be incomplete without him. My grandmother always warned me to be nice to get the best gift from Santa and narrated the true story of Santa Claus, which begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in place of Patara in Turkey. His rich parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Nicholas was generous; he used his whole wealth to help the poor, needy, and sick.
Now while lying on my couch looking at the winking fairy lights jeweled on my Christmas tree, snug with my treasure trove of memories, Christmas carol infuses a wave of nostalgia in the winter wind. My grandmother is no more, but I am holding a new life in the form of my daughter. Now I am passing my grandmother’s tales and teachings to my daughter what she said Santa Claus had taught us.
1.No ideas work unless you work on them: Santa makes us understand it won’t work for you unless you don’t work on your thoughts. He had an idea to work for the needy he had executed it by taking proper action.
- Age is just a number: I had never seen a young Santa in my lifetime. Santa Claus teaches us and there is no retirement age when you are determined to work.
- Be consistent on your work: Each year, Santa shows his presence on December 25 consistently, which reminds us of the dedication towards his work.
- Love your work: This is the most important thing that Santa teaches us when you love your work, the result will love you back. You cannot sustain for a long time if you don’t like your job.
- 5. Be generous: Everyone admires truly helpful people. Children love Santa because of his generosity. Generosity is all about kindness, and the most important thing is it’s free; anyone can accept it as a part of life and can change others’ life. Simple advice, a word of encouragement can do wonders.
- Spread happiness: like Santa, and the world will admire you.

- Don’t bother about fashion, be yourself love what you do, what you wear, it’s completely fine if you are repeating your dress on various occasions.
9.Teamwork: Teamwork is very important for the success of any work. Santa delegates his career to his elves efficiently and acknowledges the effort of each elf.
- Motivating the team: Motivation is the real propellant of your life rocket. Every individual has a set of goals and dreams, and you need the motivation to keep you chugging along towards them. Santa uses different strategies to motivate his helpers and keep their spirits high.
- 11. Laugh hard: Nowadays, we are spending more money on hospital bills than on restaurants. A good hearty laugh is the best free medicine available in today’s world that one can consume to relieve stress and boost immunity. Santa laughs with all his heart and body. His laughter starts from his diaphragms traveling through his stomach ripple on his shoulder. His ‘ho hoho” sound carries goodwill and cheers for all humanity. So, guys laugh like there is no tomorrow.
- Believe in yourself: self believes the main ingredient of success. Santa thinks he can complete his work in one-day, and he does it successfully with confidence.
- Be stress-free: you cannot kindle a candle in the middle of a storm, so stay calm. Despite the challenges, Santa is always quiet. He still looks for possible solutions and never wastes time moaning about the problems. Smile is his weapon to counter any difficulties, so when you feel negativity, defeat you smile at it and do your job. Things will come into place.
- Time management: We often find ourselves in the middle of the road running behind the deadlines. To keep the tasks on track and avoid the bottleneck, we need to schedule our jobs properly and do time management in a proper manner.No one is good at meeting the stiff targets of time Santa Claus himself. With just a night to deliver gifts to every home, Santa faces an uphill challenge. Santa wins the battle against time by planning and gives the right presents to every child to broaden their smile on their face.
