THIS COMES BACK TO THE SAYING "TRUTH OR TRADITION". BREAKING THIS TRADITION IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS I HAVE EVER TRIED TO DO IN MY LIFE.
WHEN I was a very little boy, I was taught to hang up my stockings on Christmas eve. When I was awakened the next morning, they were filled with small toys and sacks or little boxes of candy and nuts. And beside the mantle, from which my stockings hung, a Christmas tree has suddenly appeared, decorated with shiny tinsel. And on it hung presents. Other presents for us children were piled on the floor underneath. I was told Santa Claus had come down the chimney during the night and left all these things.
But did I question what my parents told me? Of course not. I accepted it—took it all for granted. Didn't you?
Stop and think a moment! Very few have ever reflected on why they believe what they do—why they follow the customs they do, or from where those customs came. We were born into a world filled with customs. We grew up accepting them without question.
