I am just really interested in why people do what they do at Christmas. For instance, the other night on facebook, our pastor posted something about santa....the lie we tell our kids. It started this whole string of people commenting. The people who do not do Santa were kind of just neutral. Their comments were like, "No, we chose not to do Santa, but you know, different strokes...." BUT the people who do Santa with their kids were mean. Making comments like, "Oh, so pretending is wrong and imagination is sinful etc...." I just want to know why people are so PASSIONATE about wanting to force people to "do" the Santa thing, yet these same people might be Christians and never fuss about evolution being taught. It just really intrigues me. Do they feel guilty for lying so they must passionately argue why we all must do Santa? If you have any thoughts, please comment. I am NOT trying to be controversial or argumentative, just conversational. I think there is not right or wrong on this topic. I just found it to be really interesting.
