The End of Disbelief…

As entrepreneurs, we have an instinctive ability to suspend our disbelief in certain situations and ponder what could be or what might be. We refuse to listen to the voices that tell us something is impossible or unachievable. That’s why I was a bit dismayed when my son recently said he’s starting to get skeptical about the existence of Santa Claus.

I want to foster in him a strong imagination and the ability to believe in things that seem (on the surface) to be unbelievable, so I did what any good parent would do — I got Santa to record a video message to prove he’s real. My son wrote Santa a letter (as he does every year), and Santa even read it back to him on the video. No word yet on what effect it’s had on my boy.

I tell you all that as a prelude to what you’re about to watch. I also asked Santa to record a message for YOU, just in case you’re having a tough time getting into the Christmas Spirit this year. Take a look…

Once again, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the entire Mercantile Family!

    What a cute video, I hope it helped your son out! I know that the Christmas spirit went away a little as my children grew up, but with the Grandkids now all we want to do is make sure they continue believing.
