Advent December 24..Christmas Eve and the one day I will refer to Santa in my picture series. You see, I can never take santa out of Christmas and that is why I have emphasized through the years that Jesus is real, Santa is a storybook man...Santa answers wishes, Jesus answers prayers, Santa shows us ways of loving...Jesus IS love. The CocaCola santa brings many warm and good memories [this is the 1963 ad but the one i seem to remember the most]...I had fun doing a little research on the artist, Sundblom, and history this morning. and yes, I will look at the book "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" sometime today but we will close the day by reading the Bible story of Jesus' birth
There are several pictures of Santa Kneeling at the manger...I used to frown when I saw that but know I smile and say "Santa even kneels before the king" and there is a poem about Santa talking with Jesus and being puzzled that people honor Santa when it is Jesus Day!!
