I think one of the huge challenges for Christians at Christmas is that the average guy in the street has heard the Christmas stories but never really understood them. So there’s this familiar fluffiness.

I am reminded of the Zen Buddhist koan, if you see the Buddha on the road, kill him. I could just as easily say, if you see Santa Jesus in the shopping mall, sleigh him.
