Jesus vs Santa

I copied this from Jen's Blog and added a line:

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.

You have to stand 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 did. 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 the tree.

Santa is a lie

JESUS is the TRUTH

It’s obvious there is really no comparison.

We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.

We need to put Christ back in Christmas.

Jesus is still the reason for the season.

I've been lurking around your blog for a while now. I don't get much time to read or comment but I do check in and enjoy it.

About Santa.......
I have two boys (12 and 9) and a daughter (almost 2). My 9 year old just decided a few days ago that he doesn't believe and my youngest is too young to understand right now. I told my husband I don't think I want to do the Santa thing with her. He thinks I'm too extreme. I can't see setting them up for the disappointment and confusion. And of course, as you posted, Santa is irrelevant. It's all about Jesus and we need to remember that.
