默认 童话

由于之前的沙发事件,这次圣诞我变得格外小心,至少,我一直很努力地小心着。

沙发就是Big Comfy Couch,我女儿最喜欢的电视节目之一。那天沙发来Mall里表演,我们起了个大早去赶早场,远远就看见好大一个沙发摆在天井中间,我光注意找位子了,一没留神身边的女儿已经把脑袋伸进沙发里去了。

我正奇怪这沙发里面有什么好看的,她却让我也把脑袋进去看看沙发里面藏什么没有,我装模做样摆弄了一番,说黑乎乎的什么也看不见于是一把拉她走开。直到后来节目开演时我才恍然大悟,沙发里有个小木偶的角色,叫多莉还是猫莉的我也没搞清,反正在台上和另外一个红鼻子小丑大姑娘一唱一和的很是招小朋友们喜爱。

节目散场之后,她马上又拉着另一个小朋友的手跑去研究沙发,之后她兴冲冲跑过来告诉我说,爸爸,你猜怎么回事,沙发底下藏了个人!

我哭笑不得,同时发现工作人员已经走过来开始驱赶那些在沙发背后窥觎已久的小朋友们:Hi,girls,don't peek......

这时的我才觉得有些尴尬,刚才是不是应该阻止一下,毕竟,这些都属于童话,不应该被怀疑,不应该被揭穿的。

* * *

圣诞临近,学校里的中文课上,老师让每个小朋友都给Santa写了一封信,用中文写的,贴墙上展览。回到家,她问我们,我给Santa要什么,Santa真的就会送给我什么吗?我们点头,于是她趴在桌上又给Santa写了一封信,用英文,她觉得Santa可能不太懂中文,英文更保险一些。有趣的是,这次她还把想要礼物的图片从flyer上小心翼翼地剪下来,工工整整地贴在信上面。

她要的是一只会听话的小狗,叫它趴下就趴下,叫它打滚就打滚的那种玩具狗,价格不菲。这只狗我们后来在逛Walmart时看见了,她特意指给我们看。我想偷懒,不想跑第二回了,说爸爸现在给你买了怎么样?她异常轻松地说不用了,Santa会给我送的,你给我买别的吧。

* * *

Santa回信了,老婆忍不住先拆开看了,因为很想知道Santa信上有没有提到礼物一事。谢天谢地,Santa没说送,也没说不送,满篇扯东扯西聊他的那几只Reindeer如何如何。

我们知道该做什么了,时间有些紧,但好歹还来得及。

街上到处堵车,所有的店里跟被抢劫了一样,一片狼籍。

* * *

平安夜,电视上插播特别新闻,北美安全防卫部门已经发现了Santa的踪迹!特别派出了两架F16给Santa的空中雪橇护航!Santa正在前往北美的路上!

我一惊!缓过来后赶快让女儿过来看电视,尽管屏幕上是动画,可她仍是满脸兴奋,Santa要来了!带着我的礼物!

她指着屏幕一个一个念着那九只驯鹿的名字,如数家珍。最后突然说,我觉得校车上的杰西卡肯定只会得到一个coe,因为她不believe in Santa.

coe是什么?我问。可能是一种黑石头吧,她说。

来做客的朋友们都哈哈大笑:不相信Santa的孩子,Santa只会送给他一块石头。

* * *

打开礼物的那天早上,我指着一个小礼物盒子吓唬她:你先开这个吧,看看那个盒子里会不会是一个coe?

她吓得一脸煞白,拆包装的手都有些哆嗦,到最后发现是我跟她开玩笑时,才露出一脸迁怒的笑。

"Santa"果然守信,送了她想要的东西。她给小狗做了只软乎乎的床,还做了两床被子,当然也没忘了给它起一个好听的名字,叫Crimpy。

这两天出去串门,她总要带着她的Crimpy,给每一个见到的人展示Crimpy的机灵,当然每次都没忘了要强调一下----Santa送给我的,因为我给他写信了。

她抱着Crimpy,认真地念着Santa给她的回信,那幅画面已经定格在我的脑海之中。

* * *

节日里,有次和朋友聊天,聊起小狗的价格,我忍不住说道,这东西虽然贵但却很难买到,跑了好几个地方才......

眼角的余光发现她也在客厅,我赶忙打住。她在看着别处,没有转过来看我,不确定她是否听见了。但我总有些心虚。

有一天她认真地问我,你和妈妈那天晚上真的没有起来放礼物吗?

我说没有。Are you sure? 她仍有些怀疑。

我坚持说没有,真的。

她哦地一声走开,留下我怅然唏嘘。

其实之前她在地下室发现包装纸时就问过,这纸怎么和Santa用的一模一样啊?我快速反应回答说Santa肯定也是在Walmart买的吧,就那几种,难免重样了。她也就信了,可显然我没有吸取教训,还是不足够谨慎。

* * *

无论如何,明年我一定要小心小心再小心了,可能的话,让她去打打北美安全防卫部门的热线电话,据说会实时通报Santa的最新行踪的。不信爸爸,政府总该信吧?

即使她真的不相信爸爸,爸爸也绝不能让她不相信童话。

听新闻里说,有小朋友问了很高深的问题:为什么圣诞老人偏心?偏爱富人家的孩子?因为富人家的孩子得到的礼物更好。

默认 俺女儿也问俺

为啥SANTA老头送的礼物都有玩具店的售货标签?记得书上说SANTA老头是亲手做玩具给小朋友的。

--SANTA老头现在嫌做太费劲,改成买了

她对俺的回答不太满意,也没说什么

我相信圣诞老人BEFORE, 可是那礼物总是爸妈那儿拿的...之后我就不信了...
刚看过一个MOVIE, 有关SANTA的. 你相信, 就能听到铃声~不相信, 就没有....唉....是一种信仰吧...


聊一聊我们未来那些日子
是否在天亮以后不再迷失
原来活着的样子 是坦然的过一辈子
过程只是让你更懂事

默认 Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus

每年圣诞都会给孩子准备圣诞礼物还有一封Santa的信,评点孩子的优点,所以送出礼物之类。今年去niagara过得圣诞,自然把礼物也带上了。不过在宾馆里第一次读到了一篇有关圣诞老人是否存在的当地报纸(实际上也是转载的1897年的一篇“编者按”),看后,很为感动:感动媒体呵护这种童心的社会责任感。。。




Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus


Editorial Page, New York Sun, 1897



We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the communication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of The Sun:


I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia O'Hanlon




Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a sceptical age. They do not believe except what they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.


Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.


He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus?Thank God he lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!
