Jesus and Santa

Christmas is all about traditions, which means doing the same thing year after year. And so, in the true spirit of Christmas, I am posting my annual list of the Top Ten Reasons why Santa is Better than Jesus.

10. Santa does not endorse any political candidates or parties.

9. If you’re bad, Santa gives you a lump of coal, he doesn’t try to turn you into one.

8. Santa comes to town riding a sleigh pulled by flying reindeer; Jesus comes to town riding someone else’s ass (which seems to have become a tradition among some of his followers, by the way).

7. Jesus says he loves little kids, but Santa actually lets them sit in his lap.

6. Santa doesn’t spend all his time obsessing over how other people have sex.

5. Santa can run his whole enterprise, year after year, without begging for donations.

4. Some of history’s worst atrocities and injustices have been committed by people who believe in Jesus, but NONE of them have been committed by people who believe in Santa.

3. Santa is satisfied if you’re just reasonably good most of the time—he doesn’t demand the death penalty for everyone who fails to be absolutely perfect.

2. Santa cares enough to come back every year.

And my number one reason why Santa is better than Jesus:

1. Santa would save you from Hell by not creating it in the first place. Duh.

    I still believe in Santa. All those presents left under the tree – where else could they have come from?

      Trees go up. Presents appear. You can’t explain that!

    But Jesus is real – it’s in the Bable. Anyway Santa is too good to be true – Jesus , not so much.

    If he showed up at your house, Jesus would bleed all over your carpet (those gaping wounds and all).

    Santa would only leave a little chimney soot behind.

    All Santa asks for, in return for his present-delivery service & mall appearances, are some dairy (or dairy substitute) beverages & baked goods once a year.
