Christmas. Celebrations…parties…gifts…decorations and so forth and so on.
Look at the stores…have you realized how commercialized Christmas has become?
A GRANDMOTHER took her grandson to see Santa Claus in a department store after purchasing about a dozen Christmas gifts.
Santa gave the boy a little present.
“What do you say to Santa?” prompted grandma.
“Charge it,” said the little boy.
IN our country the economy is not in a very good shape.
The times are hard but not hard enough to stop people from celebrating.
Somebody says: I never knew how hard the times are until I got to talk to Santa Claus. I asked him how Rudolph is and he says, “Delicious!”
Now here’s a funny article I got from the Internet authored by Laura Walton and she persists in believing that Santa Clause is a woman. I went through it and I laughed at it. Because it seems to make sense. So why don’t I share this with you and you be the one to decide whether Santa is indeed a woman or not.
Here’s how it goes:

Santa is a woman…I’m convinced it must be true
So many things he takes credit for…Most men just will not do
He spends his days in shopping malls…Passing out candy and gum sticks
He gabs with moms and kids alike…And takes great party pics

Santa always keeps a list…And always checks it twice
Why, isn’t that the story…Of every woman’s life?
Santa’s into arts and crafts…He’s always making toys
And he keeps tabs on all the neighborhood kids…Knows the nice girls and boys

Santa likes to decorate…They say he has a flair
He can do the trees all by himself…Knows which ornament goes where
Santa does not mind asking directions…There’s a lot of deliveries, you know
To houses all over the universe…In cities high and low

Santa makes a fashion statement…That few other men would copy
In a fur-trimmed suit of velvet red…Never wrinkled, never sloppy
Yes, Santa Claus there is a Virginia…And a Mary, Sue and Jane
You must know all of them quite well…For you are much the same

Santa has to be a woman…It’s the only thing that’s right
Who else would work on holiday presents…All hours of the night[1]
End of article.
Now…are you convinced that Santa is probably a woman?
And here are other reasons why Santa can’t possibly be a man:
Men can’t pack a bag.
Men would rather be dead than caught wearing red velvet.
Men would feel their masculinity is threatened, having to be seen with all those elves.
Men don’t answer their mail.
Men would refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything remotely resembling a “bowlful of jelly.”
Men aren’t interested in stockings unless somebody’s wearing them.
Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a commitment.

Now don’t take this seriously.
I don’t believe in an overweight person wearing red pajamas with a stocking on his or her head…I believe in Jesus born as a baby during the first Christmas as God’s grace and mercy to send us a Savior because you and I are dead in our sins.
Jesus not Santa. And this is the serious part.
