Try being someone's secret Santa too.The secret Santa
Every kid in their whole childhood definitely had one secret Santa, who gifted chocolates/stationary to the kids every Christmas. Priya always believed there was a Santa, because every year her socks used to be filled with chocolates in Christmas. Every year her mother, made sure her beliefs are constant and thus consistently filled her socks with chocolates. But this year, she got an unique gift, a red camera. To the astonishment her mother yet again filled the socks with chocolates, so this time,there was a secret Santa in real. Priya's father was in navy, so the only time they met was during holidays, and Christmas isn't considered a holiday. The red camera made priya the happiest, whether it was sent by mistake or was delivered by mistake, was still a confusion. Like every year they exchanged gifts, ate cake and clicked lots of pictures in the new camera. Priya got a new obsession of photography and all she did was click pictures of everything that she got. She has never been seen this happy, it looked as if she always wanted to be a photographer. To her mother the confusion of this expensive gift still persisted.The next morning priya went to meet her friends and flaunted her new camera which she was gifted by none other than the Santa. She clicked pictures of her friends, neighbors, the mailman. The girl next door , mira ,saw the camera, their family financial status wasn't so strong. She obviously felt sad, she cried and requested her mother for the same camera , which was impossible for them to afford . Priya's mother saw the kid, how badly she wanted that camera, so the next day Priya's mother went to the supermarket, purchased the same camera, wrapped it up and wrote a small note saying, merry belated Christmas, your secret Santa. She kept the gift outside their house and quietly witnessed the happiness Mira had after getting the gift.
Its amazing, how small gestures may bring so much happiness in someone's life. How one gifted camera, brought happiness to another kid too. So the next time you see someone sad, try being their secret Santa too.
