I know this is early, but I th'ot I'd preempt the superstitious among us. . . Christmas trees are not idols. Santa Claus was indeed a saint. And if calling to mind the good tidings of great joy of the gift of God's Son to all people, and His act of peace and good will toward men with beauty and feasts and gift-giving makes me guilty, it only makes me guilty of loving Christ, and therein I plead guilty a thousand times! I can't light enough Christmas trees! Merry Christmas!
