Agreed. I think Christmas is about Jesus Christ, not Santa Claus. That having been said, I think parents are free to teach their children whatever they want, but I disagree with teaching children that there is a Santa Claus. If you don’t want someone telling a kid something contrary to what you want them to be taught, don’t ship them to a government school/indoctrination camp and abdicate an important portion of your parental responsibility.
In any event, I have no problem with a teacher telling children that Santa Claus doesn’t exist. He doesn’t. So why make a big deal out of someone telling the truth, rather than perpetuate an Anti-Christian lie? I dunno, but I’m sure someone will flame about it.
Yep. But, in all honesty, I feel the same about believing and teaching about Magic Underwear or the Holly Ghost...Told you, I am a Grinch...
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.
Research the origins of Santa and see it’s not just innocent fun, it’s actually quite evil, and I have no problem telling kids there is no santa, it’s anti-biblical in a big way.
