Archbishop Scrooge

It’s one thing to not teach your own kids about Santa, but it’s quite another to have someone stand up in your church and make your kids cry:

Almost every year, it seems, there’s a story about some wretched clergyman (in my experience, usually some Anglican who wants his name in the papers) who makes all the children in his parish cry by announcing that there’s no such person as Father Christmas. This year, I’m sorry to say, it’s a Catholic archbishop.

William Oddie suggests we reclaim St. Nicholas instead of rejecting him. I think he’s on to something.
