Do you believe in Santa Claus? Long time ago, children of all ages would anticipate Christmas Eve in hope that Santa would bring them presents. Even as we grew older, we still wanted to believe in this jolly old figure. But ask any child now if they believe in Santa, and they would roll their eyes as if you were out of your mind. Santa Claus does not exist.
Who is this Santa Claus? In one song, Santa Claus is said to determine if you have been good or bad and warns us not to cry or complain. Santa brings toys and joy to good children, and brings coal to the bad. How does one man have the capacity to determine who is good and who is bad? How does he deliver his goods to everyone in the world? Who is Santa?
Can Santa be God? God is said to determine who is good and who is bad, and rewards each, as they deserve. Does this sound like what Santa Claus does? Maybe we should not give up in our belief in Santa Claus so early. Let our children continue to believe in this Jolly old man who brings joy and teaches us to be good.
