I abhor Santa
I am hesitantly sharing this because it seems so negative, however it is very true & a necessary part of my testimony. I was about 6 years old when I discovered gifts in my mother's closet. Sure enough, they showed up on Christmas "from Santa". I clearly remember my reaction to this day though I don't know if I said anything about it. I just remember being disappointed & angry because I'd been deceived & disgusted. Funny, I still feel the same way about the whole Santa thing. I don't want to play along with it at all. I tell the children Santa is a lie, but Jesus is true! I totally do not get the "fun" of pretending with Santa. Why not just tell them the truth? Matthew 1:21 "And she will bring forth a Son, and you will call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."
