Santa Claus Oath

Dedicated to Jim Yellig and Charles W. Howard

Keep Christ in Christmas

The Keep Christ in Christmas movement was started over a decade ago and has been adopted by numerous organizations including churches, civic clubs, business associations, and religious societies.

The Santa Claus Oath is based on the Christian principle that it is truly better to give than to receive.  Part of the Oath's idiom states, "I know the "real reason for the season" and know that I am blessed to be able to be a part of it."  The Santa Claus Oath supports Keep Christ in Christmas knowing that Christ IS the true gift of Christmas.


The True Gift of Christmas

What started two thousand years ago with a gift from above, was given to all mankind with unconditional love.

It was given to all who would accept its mysterious beauty and joy, when a virgin mother gave birth to a little baby boy.

The little boy's life was like no other ever recorded on stone, paper or clay. He taught us many a lesson on life as he went through his days.

During his Passion he fully gave of himself to all others, as he laid down the gift of his life for the sins of his sisters and brothers.

Long ago his birth was made a day of mass and commemoration, which is celebrated by men, women, and children of every nation.

His simple birth is a reminder of what is true, pure, and believed; that it is genuinely better to give than to receive.

Centuries have come and gone; with man adding secular traditions to his birth; there are Santas, sleigh bells, candy canes and gatherings with much mirth.

Sometimes we forget what was given from above, Keep CHRIST in CHRISTMAS; THE TRUE GIFT OF GOD'S LOVE.
