Drink Offerings to "Santa"

 [source]

This picture kind of says it all. People really don't take the time to question traditions and "WHY" they do them. Surely there are many Christian parents who leave milk and cookies for Santa Claus not thinking of the "deeper meanings" of this tradition.

Reminds me of food for Buddha or food sacrificed to idols. It teaches kids that if the creepy Santa eats his cookies and drinks his milk, it is proof that he was there. Sounds like a bit of a bribe to leave out so called goodies.Jesus gives out good gifts to His children. He doesn't have to be bribed with milk and cookies.This isn't about Jesus' birth to most people. When you drive you see neighborhoods with decorations you see nothing about Jesus. They worship Me with their mouths but their hearts are far from Me.

Yes it reminds me too of all those food offerings to Buddha. [Santa and Buddha are the same weight and there's a lot of statues of both]

Agree it's bribes for 'another god'. More breaking of the first commandment.

I've mentioned somewhere before that September 11 is national "hot cross bun day" and September 12 is the "the feast of the most holy name of the blessed Virgin Mary" (I thought Jesus was the name above all other names). They are literally kneading dough and baking cakes to the queen of heaven as stated in Jeremiah. I guess this could be a coincidence, but I seriously doubt it. These type of things are obvious to those who are looking for it. I was looking through a Roman Catholic calendar and seen this. My jaw dropped......James
