You can connect Christianity to anything you like but it will not be true Christianity. That will be a virtual copy. True Christianity is about Lord Jesus Christ and has nothing to do with Santa Claus, Christmas Day and any of the other religious festivals that were superimposed upon people in an attempt to nullify the influence of true Christians.
Santa Claus is a nice little myth for children and can also be used to create a sense of mystery in a world that is full of unbelieving, atheistic, warmongering hypocrites who have no hope for eternal life, having been born only to die.
Santa Claus apparently grew out of some myth known as the Legend of St Nick. The word “nick” is also vernacular for stealing in certain places around the world. But this “St Nick” character was endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church.
The Legend of St. Nicholas. The legend of Santa Claus can be traced back hundreds of years to a monk named St. Nicholas. It is believed that Nicholas was born sometime around 280 A.D. in Patara, near Myra in modern-day Turkey. Much admired for his piety and kindness. — HISTORY.comThe true story of the Bishop Nicholas is more in keeping with Christians who suffered for their faith.
Under the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ruthlessly persecuted Christians, Bishop Nicholas suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned. The prisons were so full of bishops, priests, and deacons, there was no room for the real criminals—murderers, thieves and robbers.—Who is St. Nicholas?Halloween is another of those little myths that belong to the world of the unfortunate. Yet people get upset over Halloween being practiced for different reasons. In Malaysia, Halloween has been banned by the Islamic authority. Christians also have good reason not to support Halloween. For as the Junior Ghost Hunters report:
Halloween's beginnings take place around 500 B.C. in the area that is now Great Britain, France, Scotland, and Ireland. October 31st commemorated "Samhain," or the Celtic New Year -- the day marked the end of the summer season, the end of the harvest, and the beginning of winter.
The Druids, who were the spiritual and intellectual leaders of the Celts, believed that on this day the barrier between the physical world and the spirit realm is suspended -- it's the day the spirits, elves, and fairies are allowed to not only walk among the living, but also meddle in our affairs.
To appease the ghosts and monsters of the past, the Celts built large bonfires, had sacrifices of animals and food offerings, and held celebrations. The celebrations included such practices as bobbing for apple.True Christianity has nothing to do with myths. The myth true Christianity dispels is that there is hope in a futile world, because the only true way to God is based upon the truth of the resurrection, for if the dead are not raised, then there is no hope for anyone. Fortunately, those who discover Lord Jesus Christ and enter into an intimate relationship with Him are baptized in the Holy Spirit by Him and have the assurance of eternal life.
The truth has no connection with the myth of Santa Claus or any other myth.
