      Best Christmas book ever is J.R.R. Tolkien's Father Christmas letters, between the stories about polar bear's accidents and the elf language to decode, I was entertained for hours, as were my children by it. So lovely.

      Aqui no meu país o Natal é falso.Poucos são os que fazem o digno Natal com fartura e religião.Tudo aqui é falso para parecer legal pro RESTO DO MUNDO.É um país liderado por bandidos, logo, não tem papai noel, pois NÃfO há justiça social. Há sim muita desigualdade social. o povo é muito pobre e ignorante.É uma pena

      I never have a real Christmas during my childhood, because it always been the same day as the Constitution Day in my country...
