Need some help

Okay , I need some help and I am thinking this is probably the best place to get it! I am looking for a Christmas story that I can retell as Santa.

My last Santa appearance of the season is always Christmas Eve at my church. Each year during the Homily (sermon) I discuss the true meaning of Christmas with the congregation. This year Santa will arrive to discuss the symbols of Christmas and what they are meant to remind us of. I am looking for a story I found on the Internet last year. The story was perfect! Unfortunately, I didnít bookmark it and now I canít find it. Has anyone come across a story of Santa describing the symbols of Christmas?

I did. I got lots of data. I just need to pull it all together. Oh and of course get it committed to memory by Christmas Eve! 8)

I'm surprised that a Church would have a Santa Clause. Then again, it probably applies more to the really overly religious since regular churches arent really like that, hearing all about their dislike for Santa Claus and want him taken out of Christmas because he's just a holiday/winter icon and not a 'religious' icon, I'm guessing.

Yea right
