Santa Is Coming Again

DRF—If I was not a follower of Christ, the “Christmas thing” would be a problem. Why all this talk about needing a savior? I imagine that the focus would be on Santa and gifts. We would skip any historical gift giver named Saint Nicholas and focus on Santa’s magical ability to make toys and fly around the world in one night. We would tell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and never mention the word “God.”

If I were a monk, I would separate myself from the cultural traditions. However, I am called to be “in the world and not of it.” Enjoy those cultural traditions and keep on eye on the real reason for the season.
