I myself would never consider thinking that the idea of Santa is evil or Satanic. I just thought it was an interesting thing to think about, and I wanted to share it with you all, and see what your opinons on the subject are. :D
The claim that Santa is the devil is a little freighting as he infiltrates our western culture and our children’s minds every Christmastime. Santa gets away with it because his methods are subtle. He still frightens kids: it’s just that he does so on their own terms. The warning that, if they aren’t good, Santa won’t bring them any presents isn’t so far of from religious threats that unless you do X Y, or Z you will go to hell.
And there’s more. Santa comes down the chimney. And the devil apparently lives in a pit of hell-fire. No one has ever been to and returned alive from either hells or Santa’s workshop. And they are both worshipped. The fact that Santa commands adoration from small children and the devil from certain heavy metal freaks is beside the point, especially when one considers that Santa’s reindeer have cloven feet.
And most disturbingly of all, Santa’s name can be no mistake. It is a very well disguised anagram of Satan, which is surely no mere coincidence. Who can tell which Christmas time Santa will choose to reveal his true identity?
