Santa Ban?!

Okay, so I totally agree that the REASON FOR THE SEASON is Christ, but honestly... banning Santa?!

Santa ban?

German Catholics are campaigning to ban Santa Claus in a bid to lower the commercial hype surrounding Christmas.

The Bonifatiuswerk, a church aid organization, has begun calling for "Santa Claus-free zones."

The organization says Santa is an "invention of the advertising industry designed to boost sales."

The organization feels Santa Claus has very little to do with historical figure of St. Nicholas.

St. Nicholas, the patron saint of children, is described on the group's website as a "helper in need who reminds us to be kind, think of our neighbors, and to give the gift of happiness."
