In a report today on studies show that upwards of 85% of people in America said that Santa played a significant role in their early Christmas celebrations as a child. The report also said that 81% of people with some kind of religious affliliation believed in angels, included 97% of evangelical Christians, and 57% of those with no religious views at all. Great. I just don’t see the connection. What do angels and Santa have in common? I suppose this is supposed to highlight a spiritual consciousness in the American psyche, but it just plain sad that the belief in Santa and angels is considered an equal comparison.
