Children are children.
I couldn't have pictured my childhood without the whole idea of Christmas and Santa Claus.
When I am a parent I'm going to celebrate Christmas with my children in that way but they will also be taught about Christ and his sacrifice.
In this world of horrors we live in I can't see removing another source of joy from it.
Does that make me a bad Christian... Maybe but so does everyday I continue to breath. A child's happiness is one of the most wonderful things in the world and playing the Santa Claus game always bring a smile to their faces.
