We live in a society of extremes. Although there are many lights, people still live in “darkness”. There are frenzied shoppers in financial bondage, while others do not observe Christmas, insisting that it is wrong because of all the ado. Still others are out buying gifts because “they have to”.
Through the so-called Christmas season, Santa Claus is much in the mind of American children. Books portray him, TV displays him, songs remind us of him, and the stores give opportunity to meet him! Does the Bible have anything to say about this contemporary emphasis on a mythological Santa?
