Christmas Time in the Kingdom Hearts World

Merry Christmas from Kingdom Hearts Ultimania

What would Christmas be like in the KH World?

‘Tis the season, fellow KHUsers. By tomorrow, visions of sugar plums will dance in your heads, or perhaps sooner if you’re on any sort of heavy medication. Regardless, Christmas is nearly here. For everyone that celebrates the holidays, you know this time of year is often a joyous and hectic one.

But, can you imagine how much more stressful shopping for loved ones and preparing festivities would be if you had to juggle it with saving the worlds from the Heartless?

Sora’s Christmas Belief

Here’s the thing, we know Christmas exists in the Kingdom Hearts universe because of Halloween Town. Santa Clause reminds Sora of an incident in which he declared he didn’t believe in Santa. Later Sora reconciles with this, when realized that he was egged on by Riku at a young age.

But, can you imagine the pressure? Awkward moments with Santa… And, can you imagine Sora’s Christmas list?

What gifts would Sora buy for his Kingdom Hearts friends?

Also, what kind of Christmas traditions would you imagine they have from world-to-world? On Destiny Islands I wonder if they top their Paopu trees with Wayfinders, or hang sandals over their fire pit?

On the other hand: let’s take poor Saint Nick into this equation. Assuming in the Kingdom Hearts universe that Santa visits every world, and each star in the sky is its own world…oh geez.

Not to mention, he has to do it all the night of Christmas eve, and SURELY every world has a different period of revolution, considering they’re located everywhere and have different sizes…mostly this just leaves a lot of math that I’m not comfortable with attempting for fear of setting off flashbacks to high school algebra.

Then, there’s the subject of world borders. How would Santa be able to go from world to world without a gummi ship, or a Keyblade, or…Aha! Santa Clause is clearly a member of Organization XIII.

The Silver-Haired Boy that Stole Christmas

So, let’s backtrack. When Sora was eight years old we know that Riku was the one that told him that Santa wasn’t real. What made Riku into such a Grinch? I bet 10 Munny he asked Santa for Kairi, and was greeted with a wooden sword, or a wooden trident, or a wooden fishing net. Wow, I’m just starting to realize how much fun it must be to be a child on Destiny Islands.

The Kingdom Hearts Message of Christmas

This whole holiday equation gets much more complicated if you take into consideration religions, customs, mythology, and the idea of this all seeming the same in an alternate universe. However, the most important thing Kingdom Hearts seems to share with our mentality of the Christmas season and its gift-giving is this:

“What really counts—what’s really special—is the act of
giving the gift. To wish deep in your heart to make someone else happy.”

We should remember that being with our loved ones and expressing how much we appreciate them is most important now, more than ever. I certainly hope you remember that this Holiday season!
