A Secular Christmas

Christmastime is near

When kids in grade school pageants

Pray for Santa’s toys!


“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.”

Norman Vincent Peale

I was asked one time, “How do non-Christians celebrate Christmas?” I said that we buy gifts for each other, put our gifts under a Christmas tree, put out lights on our houses and maybe some reindeer on the lawns, bake cookies, have family dinners, and celebrate love and community.” They pretty much agreed that we all get into the Secular Christmas Spirit.

His Infinite Awareness

Omniscient being

The one who knows all our needs…

And talks to reindeer


“Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see.”

The Conductor fromĀ The Polar Express

Am I the first to call Santa Claus an omniscient being? Think about it, though. He knows if we’ve been bad or good. He sees us when we’re sleeping, and he knows when we’re awake. And he knows where we live!
