Too much Santa, not enough Christ

The older I get, the more uncomfortable I am with the character of Santa Claus. I think it is because I have been studying the Scripture more in the last year, and I'm appreciating the true work and character of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The mythological character of Santa seems less like a storybook character and more like a counterfeit Christ to me, the older I get. I found a website that really struck a nerve with me. It's long, and I'm sure most of you will disagree with it. Here it is, though, for your consideration: Santa Claus, the Great imposter.

I think I'm going to pay less attention to Santa, with my children and grandchildren, and focus more on Jesus Christ.
