Santa Works For God

Just in case you didn't know, Santa was hired by God. Why, because I needed a way to allow my kids to enjoy the traditions of Santa while understanding that Jesus is why we celebrate Christmas. I know, some of you would never think of allowing your children to believe in Santa, while others lie their heads off to make sure their kids are 13 before they figure out that a 300 pound man could not possible fit down their non-existent chimney. Well, I am somewhere in between. I might change my mind in a few years and decide that I went the wrong direction with the whole story, but for now, Santa is a nice, charitable guy who works for God. This way, Parker can still think that Santa brings gifts, but God remains the real hero of Christmas with the best gift of all, Jesus. I like it. If you don't, I understand, just don't tell Parker or Graham :)

That's pretty awesome. Santa's an angel. A very fat angel. I like it.

I really like this idea. I've thought about how I would tell my kids about Santa (when I have kids, of course). I thought about telling them that Santa was a real person at one time, and he brought toys to the kids of a town...but I think I like your idea a whole lot better.
