Yes, I too blame the belief in Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny and tooth fairy for the moral decay of our youth over the past 75 years. I know many are not informed, but our nation did not have any of these influences for our first 300 years. If parents lie to their children about small matters like these, why should their children ever believe them? What's wrong with just teaching our youth about God and Jesus?

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.
