ST. LOUIS, December 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- This year Santa is leveraging the Internet to tell children the true meaning of Christmas. ChristmasGram.com has created personalized video messages from Santa that explain the real reason for Christmas – Christ. From the delightful setting of Santa's Toy Workshop and from his quiet living room, Santa speaks to each child by name, reminding them the true meaning of Christmas - the birth of Jesus Christ.
The reason for the project, according to Jan Godfrey, a project volunteer, is that many people believe the true meaning of Christmas is being hijacked by political correctness, commercialism and apathy.
"The future of Christmas lies with our children. Next to family and friends, Santa is the ideal person to remind us why we celebrate Christmas," she said. "A spiritual Christmas CAN co-exist with the many secular holiday celebrations. We as Christians should not allow others to strip the holiday of its religious significance. Who better than Santa to help put Christ back into Christmas?"
