I think the bible has used characters to help draw us to the truth. Jesus told plenty of parables or fictional stories to reveal truth. The problem for many of us is that we are trying to make Santa Claus into a real person. St. Nick is who Santa was created from. He was a godly man and pointed many to Jesus. We need to make sure our children know the difference between a fun character and the truth of Jesus birth. Christmas is not about Santa Claus and what I get, but it is about Jesus and why He came down to earth for us.
