Excerpt: "My views on the meaning of Christmas have undergone two major changes. The first came as a six-year-old when I realized that Santa Claus, reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman were different from baby Jesus, donkeys, and manger scenes. After all, Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birth, not just a worldwide holiday filled with festivities and lights."
