Some of those with names related to Saint-Nicholas sadly left us too soon. Others are older. Yet others are younger… or yet to be born!
Some of you reading this post may identify with the theme of the day. Whomever you are, Bambi wishes you a Happy Name day :)! THANK you for existing in her life or for simply being alive (in your own lives :))!
When Bambi was a child, she was much inspired by Saint-Nicolas. Every Christmas season following a car explosion or a round of shelling, you could find her in the streets of her Beirut neighbourhood as a Santa Claus (Papa/”Baba” Noël :)) with a little bell and a bag of candies for the kids. Well, her little problem was that she was also a kid like them, but for a few hours, she allowed herself to behave like this kind old man! It was so rewarding and funny too since some family friends still tease her by calling her sometimes Petit papa Noël :)). Bambi adores receiving gifts in life. Yet, she is convinced that part of happiness in life is to offer gifts. Another part of life pleasure is to share those gifts with genuine family and friends.
Happy Saint-Nicholas to all those who celebrate it :)!
