This is the subject line from an email from my Rabbi... and a few of his thoughts. I agree with him. :-)
"I believe in Santa Claus...If we strip away all the commercialism and the kitsch (tackiness) that surround Santa Claus, we can see Santa Claus really reflects the best of what it means to be human...let Santa Claus be our role model during this Christmas season and take this spirit beyond Christmas."
Merry Christmas to all my scrappy friends. Maybe the warmth of the spirit of Christmas be with you throughout the new year.
