Some last thoughts of 2015

The close of the holiday season is near, as we ring out 2015 and welcome 2016 with arms wide open, of new hope and dreams along with those things that we call resolutions.
This time of the year is known as the most wonderful time of the year but for some it can also be the most stressful time of year. For some reason the holiday season has an effect on people, something in the air during this time of year. Like I mentioned before in I believe in Santa there can be hope for people. When I say stressful it does not necessarily mean that the store sold out of the toy one was looking for, parking in the farthest spot from the entrance at the mall. No stressful as in life, Christmas is all about joy, being together, making others happy giving, and if you believe, the birth of Jesus Christ.

Not everyone gets to experience that, family, joy, happiness, there are some that have a hard time with a lot of things whether family sickness, not a lot of money for the kids presents or who you would like to buy things for.

Through the things I have experienced in my short time span of life so far I have come to the fact that as long as I have a nice Christmas tree and my family with me that it is a great Christmas. My Dad is sick as in has a mechanical heart device that keeps him alive sick. He has had the machine for six years now, and he is unable to do what he used to do job wise when he was diagnosed.  Our Christmases changed from when he was working to when he was first diagnosed in 2007 to getting the device in 2009. It always bothered him as well as my mother that we sometimes might not be able to get what we want or provide a lovely Christmas for us. Along that journey we started going to church it made me see things differently the holiday seasons.

Presents became less important and I always asked Santa for another year with my Dad & Mom, I have been blessed thus far. As I said before if one believes Santa is higher power, magic entity or a guy in a red suit on a soda can. He has become much more to me over the years. The one thing that brings us together for the holidays is the Christmas tree as we all go shopping for one, each year we take turns picking it out and there have been a few years it was Dad’s pick and every year we have a great tree.

I had mentioned before I believe in Santa this is more of the reasons as to why he is more than a jolly man in a red suit. My parents were asking me this year what do I want for Christmas? I had no idea really, I always have an ongoing list of things, action figures, geeky items this that and the other thing. They said if you can have one nice thing what would it be? Well they asked me at the beginning of this month and have yet to really come up with an answer. A couple days ago all I could come up with was a  new laptop or camera for the site but even then I knew I can try to get those anytime of the year.

My answer to them was, I already have what I want for Christmas a beautiful tree and my family. I am appreciative and happy with whatever I shall receive because I know sometimes that is all we can get at the time and some in the world have less.  The bonus gift for me is if I get to give to other people whether it be pay it forward a gift for a friend or a helping hand that is all a bonus.

The thought did cross my mind as in what does this have to do with superheroes or anything to do with the variables of the geeky world. It took me a second but realizing that sometimes all you need is a superhero to come save the day and during the holiday season the Avengers or the Justice League get a break as I turn to my Santa during this time of year. I get to be with my real superheroes, my parents everyday and through the holiday season and see if I get to be a hero for even a second in someone elses life.

I am going into the new year with my parents, new friends and even some resolutions. I wanted to share this with readers here on the site, the holiday season means so much to so many people or to some nothing at all and another day on the calendar. But it has been on my mind for awhile. Thank you for taking the time to read this. May the new year bring you everything you hope for. Happy New Year to you and your families from

How has this season been for you so far? Are you ready for the new year?

Until next time
Watchtower over & out
