I am a huge fan of Jesus and not so much a fan of Santa.
Don’t get me wrong, Santa is cool but he kinda takes center stage for Christmas and that is not what it is really about. SO, our elf’s letter helps spell out the important stuff.
I wish I could claim it as my own, but it is kind of a compilation of several different letters I have read online that follow the same train of thought.
I want you to enjoy all the fun – hot chocolate, singing Christmas songs, candy and presents – but I don’t want you to forget the most important present: God’s love for us and His son, Jesus. I don’t want you to forget that it’s still important to love others … to be nice to other people … to help other people (even your Mommy, Daddy, and friends) … to show other people how wonderful Jesus is.
