Thoughts on Being Counter-Cultural
I just read a friend's blog post: Santa or no Santa? That is the Question!. The title alone will clue you into its touchy contents. Not that we have children yet, but if the Lord blesses, it's never too early to start thinking about how we would handle this cultural issue. Just thought some of you with little ones at home might be encouraged to read what one family is doing with Santa, or rather not doing. Myself having also grown up in a family where Santa wasn't a part of our Christmas traditions, I can echo her thoughts on the children not feeling left out, or scarred, etc. I'm grateful for how my parents made Christmas about Christ. Blessings to you all as you traverse this cultural road.
