Give Santa a break

December 7, 2012

From a forum post:

You are correct. Santa is not biblical and the church should focus on the biblical.

But apart from church we should cut Santa a little slack,
It is possible that the historic Saint Nicholas secretly gave three bags of gold coins to the three daughters of a poor man so  that they might have the dowry needed for a decent marriage at the time. (He might even have dropped one bag down the chimney to maintain secrecy.)
If pawnbrokers, a breed not noted for gullibility, can credit the story and adopt the three sacks of their patron saint as a symbol of their trade, perhaps we should give the story some credit.
 
Besides Santa is popularly believed to be always saying “Ho, ho, ho”. Three “ho”s. The King James Bible contains four “ho”s. We ought not to condemn Santa for the lack of one “ho”.
