  I recently found this (posted below) on-line and thought I'd share.  I wasn't sure if it belonged in D&D or in "off-topic"...so apologies in advance to those who don't think it belongs in D&D.   Merry Christmas everyone and may your New Year be your BEST!!!

Why Jesus is Better than Santa Claus
 

Santa lives at the North Pole...
JESUS is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh...
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

Santa comes but once a year...
JESUS is an ever present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies...
JESUS supplies all your needs.

Santa comes down your chimney uninvited...
JESUS stands at your door and knocks, and then enters your heart when invited.

You have to wait in line to see Santa...
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

Santa lets you sit on his lap...
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, what's your name?"...
JESUS knew our name before we were born. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.

Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly...
JESUS has a heart full of love.

All Santa can offer is HO HO HO...
JESUS offers health, help and hope.

Santa says "You better not cry"...
JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you."

Santa's little helpers make toys...
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.

Santa may make you chuckle but...
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.

While Santa puts gifts under your tree...
JESUS became our gift and died on a tree... the cross.

We need to put Christ back in CHRISTmas, Jesus is still the reason for the season.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

That was great I think sometimes we all get to busy to stop and remember what the holdiays are really about.  I think everyone needs to stop for a few minutes to remember the real meaning of the holidays

 :cat:  That was really good, Sheryl.  Thanks for sharing it.  Even with all the contrasts between Jesus and Santa, it's odd how Santa is still sort of symbolic (at Christmas, of course) of what Jesus represents.  Regarding the picture of the German Shepherd, I think it's neat how animals can teach us lessons with just their instinct of doing what they just seem to know to do. :)

Santa Claus evolved from St. Nicholas, which has quite a long history which is too much to post on this site.  I googled St. Nicholas in my search engine and there are lots of sites to go to and learn the correlation of St. Nicolas and Jesus.  The best I read was at the St.Nicholas.org website.

The same can be said for Dumbledore... but I don't see any holidays celebrating him.  That's just too bad.

Santa Claus is a nice funny fictional character. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, savior of the wolrd. Jesus is better than santa any day.
