    • I believe in Santa Claus.
      • With the exception of Santa Claus the others are no more than fairytales which can be fun for young children. Santa Claus, on the other hand, was based on a real person or persons. I see him as a symbol of good will and an opportunity to thank those who mean the most in your life.

        When parents and family member give presents from Santa, I believe they are doing it in the spirit of Christmas. In some ways Christmas is more real than Jesus Christ.

        No matter where you stand religiously, there are some questions surrounding the Biblical Christmas Story.
        When was Jesus born?
        Where was he born?
        Where did the wise men actually come from?
        and so on.

        I believe Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year for Christians, Jewish folk, and non-believers. It's a time to say thank you to your fellow man and wish him peace and goodwill.

    • My favorite film adaptation from a book.
      • Fight Club Soap

        Leaving The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit out of the mix there have been a few. If you count graphic novels, Frank Miller's 300 & Sin City are some of the best, but that would be cheating a little bit since a graphic novel serves as storyboards for the movie. If I had to pick one it would be Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.

    • What is Faith?
      • Karma Guen 2008 - 44

        I view faith differently than most people. Many have faith in a high power. Some don't believe in anything. I believe we must have faith in ourselves and believe we can achieve great things regardless of the existence of a higher power. To me belief in God is irrelevant. He exists or doesn't, nothing I do can change that.

        I chose to live my life believing in myself and trying to create as much positive energy as possible. Negative energy is unhealthy. I do believe in karma of sorts. If you always treat people badly, eventually bad things will happen to you. If you are kind and treat others well, good things will happen.
