Jesus and Santa

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

As you celebrate Christmas this year, enjoy your traditions and take time to reflect on the real reason for the season.

For some, it's easy to confuse Jesus with Santa. After all, they both have beards and several nicknames, and often, we get caught up hoping that they both bring us everything we want. However, this season let us remember that one of them comes to give us what we think we want; the other came to give us what we need.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks, Eric. When our son was young, we told him the history of St Nicholas -- who, of course was a real person with a legitimate tie-in with the the real Jesus and the real purpose of the Nativity.

The funny downside was that one day an older woman asked him what Santa was going to bring for Christmas and he replied, "Santa is dead." Then we had to explain to her what he meant and why he said it. It was kinda funny.

Nice. True.

Let's spend the Holiday season reflecting on our blessings.

Have a Merry Christmas!
