Here is my turn to rant....
I have yet to understand the need for the exhistance of "santa claus" as well as for the reason why the true dark origin of it is not mentioned by
Tho many people tell their children about santa claus, it amazes me the most that most of christian would bite that bate ...
If Jesus is the reason for the season Why do some many Christians lie to their children about santa claus, on the exact same day they are suppose to
be celebrating the birth of their savior? did Jesus die so christians can make up lies about Santa claus ?
Isnt it sinning against God and all what He represents, to lie to children ...that are pure and innocent? and by lying to children about Santa claus
are christian parents the ones that first teach their children how to lie ?
My parents did not tell me about santa (and i'm very thankfull to them for that), they simply said ther eason why we share gifts is because the wize
men brought gifts to baby Jesus when he was born.
Saint Nicholas exhisted, but he is NOT the origin of the guy in the red suite. The truth is that "santa claus and his red suite" have very dark
origins, that started 'ions' ago during the Festival of the Stagg' where a priest would skin a reein deer alive and than wear his skin inside out
as the offer was sent to the Gods. that why Rudolph's nose is "red and shiny", and thats how Santa got his Red suite.
Here follow a couple of questions that puzzle me ....
1) when parents tell children about Santa, they tell them Santa will bring them everything they asked for if they are good boys/girls. Well when the
child does not what they asked for, isnt it cruel to sedn them on a guilt trip, based on a lie ?
won't the child ask her/himself "what did i do wrong? Why doesnt santa like me ?"
2) How can one criticze Harry Potter and things of that nature for portraying witchcraft and than teach children about a guy in a red suite that flys
across the skies, pulled by magic reein deers, and squeezes himself dow chimnees, while everyone is asleep ? isn't that magic or a form of wichtraft
3) I am often told that the reason why i think this way is because i have no children, and if i did i would love them and do everything for them.
well thats alovelly thought, but i dont see how sending children into unecessary guilt trips over a false story based on a dude that skine animals
alive is in any way shape or form considered love ?
4) Did not Jesus say that those " who loveth and maketh a lie won't enter Heaven ?", how does that connect with the santa claus thing ? I am
prefectly aware that everyone lies once in a while... i lie as well to myslef ... when i look in the mirror in the morning and say "girl, you look
great.", nevertheless, there is a mighty difference between a "once-in- a- while sleep" followed by repentace, and reuqest of forgiveness, and a
YEARLY REPETITION of a lie disguised as "Tradition", in one of the days thats supposelly should be SACRED and HOLY to Christians ?
5) Also, why are parents surprised when their children lie to them for the first time ? Why do parents aske "where did he/she learn how to lie ?"
Its obvious where they learned how to lie ... at home , with their parents, whom they look up to. their parents were the first ones to initiate them
in the fabulous world of lying. the first lie told to them WAS SANTA CLAUS. Off course everyone will eventually learn how to lie, but wouldn it be
better if kids learned that from someone else, instead of their parenst ?
6) Finally... what is the REAL need of having Santa claus ? what is it for ?
we can't say its so that cildren have fantasy, because children have PLENTY of fantasy... they even get their own "invisible" friends... if thats
not fantasy, i don't know what is ?
P.S. - "Santa" can see all and veryone, flye across the skys, know who is naughty or nice.... deliever millions of gifts in a couple of hours...
aren't those "God" like qualities ? ..Isn't God suppose to be the only one capable to know everything and everyone ?
