- Writer's Block: Santa Claus is coming to town
- January 14th, 2012
A good question, I think it's different for everyone. I think it depends on a number of things, their environment, how sheltered-a-life they are leading.
It depends on our emotional development. When we are striving to make our own decisions about life, we look back and see a need for questioning many things we took for granted. We want to be adult. We ask ourslelves, do people my age beleive in Santa Claus?
When we lose most of the magic of youth. When upon spying a dust mote, we no longer drift into a magical kingdom of our own brilliant creation.
This loss of the magic of youth happens very slowly over several years. As our desire for the opposite sex increases, so does our rationalisation of what we must say and do to appear more adult to the objects of our desires.
