We went to a Holiday Concert – and there were two songs about Santa Claus. He knows those who are naughty and nice. Not Jesus Christ the Judge, but Santa Claus. Then he was introduced as "the big man of Christmas," the one everyone is waiting for. We used to sing the Christmas carol "Come Thou Long Expected Jesus." And now Santa Claus is the long expected person.
Lord, help us to realize the difference between Christ and Santa Claus.
