We’ve all seen comparisons between Santa Claus and Satan before; I’m not the first one to compile a list or make a video about it. My first memory of such a comparison is probably from Dana Carvey’s “Church Lady” character on Saturday Night Live…

But comedy aside, the similarities are impressive – it’s like someone worked hard distract us from the Christ part of Christmas – the messages of Christianity – by creating a lovable, gift-giving, fictional character based on the devil…
When I notice that lines like Isaiah 14:13-14 –
“In the recesses of the north I will ascend above the heights of the clouds”
could apply to a flying sleigh leaving the North Pole as easily as it could fit Isaiah’s description of Satan, such things really make me wonder why – instead of focusing on Jesus or His messages of love and peace every December 25 – instead we are focused on material gifts and deceiving our children into believing in a lie about a character who doesn’t exist?
Won’t they eventually figure out Santa doesn’t exist, and wonder if God and Jesus are real too?  Is this designed to make us doubt that Satan exists?  As Kevin Spacey’s character said in The Usual Suspects:
