Extracts

“Do you know why Father Christmas’s sack never gets empty, despite the vast number of children there are in the world?  Well, although it is always full of toys, there are sometimes more important things to be delivered, what we call “invisible gifts”.  To a broken home, he tries to bring harmony and peace on the holiest night in Christianity. Where love is lacking, he deposits a seed of faith in children’s hearts. Where the future seems black and uncertain, he brings hope. In our case, the day after Father Christmas comes to visit us, we are happy just to be alive and still doing our job, which is to make other people happy.  Never forget that.”

- Christmas Stories, by Paulo Coelho
