The Santa Myth
I wrote about this back in April in the Christian Traditions post. Dr. Lydia McGrew, who holds a PhD from Vanderbilt University, seems to agree in her article on "Why I Don't Teach My Kids That Santa Claus Is Real." And here is an article in The Washington Post by one of my favorite preachers, Mark Driscoll, on the same topic: "What We Tell Our Kids About Santa." So, my general exhortation to all parents everywhere is to be truthful with your children. If I had it to do over again, I'd do it differently, so I certainly cannot judge others who have perpetuated the Santa myth.
