Do you understand who St. Nicholas was, and why he was given sainthood by the Catholic church? And no, I’m not a Catholic. I’m a Southern Baptist boy who was raised by parents who let me believe in Santa Claus, and we allowed our children to believe in Santa Claus. And we think Christianer-than-thou people are sadly misguided. And some Christianer-than-thou people seem to believe that allowing children to believe in Santa Claus are anti-Christians. How very pathetic.
No need to call yourself pathetic. St. Nicholas doesn’t live at the North Pole. a lie is a sin, and, Anti-Christian. When the memorial to Christ’s birth becomes something other than a memorial about Christ’s birth, it doesn’t interest me. Children aren’t born believeing in Santa Claus, someone has to lie to them, in order to “allow them to believe in Santa Claus.” You may lie to your kids, how pathetic. I don’t.
