  2. Yes, I agree there is a lot of difference because Jesus will always be with us and Santa Claus Doesn´t at the boy´s opinion they say he will give you presents for something back, your behavior and Jesus will always be with you and give you miracles and things that will satisfy you.

  3. The different between Santa and Jesus is that Jesus loves us always but Santa loves you only if you are a good kid.

    Yes, I do because santa claus is just a man.
    Yws, U do that Jesus is the sun of god and santa claus don´t.

  5. Jesus and Santa may be different, but that doesn't mean one is better than the other. I have always liked Jesus more than Santa, but I have to respect other people's opinions. After all, Santa is not bad. Jesus and Santa reward good behaviors, and say you can do better if you have been not so good. Both help poor people, with presents or wisdom. But the problem with Santa is that sometimes people think he represents only presents, and not helping other people. Even though of their differences, I like both Jesus and Santa.

  6. The different between Jesus and Santa Claus is that Santa Claus only love the good children, use a red cot, custom and give gifts and Jesus love everybody, Jesus forgive and Jesus does miracles.

    I agree with the boy, but at the same time I don´t because I don´t believe in Santa Claus, but his if he was , his character shows me that it is right what the boy said, that Santa doesn´t forgive but Jesus will always do it (just if you are very sorry).
    I think that another difference between Santa and Jesus is that Jesus is the most important thing about Christmas, because it´s his birth.

    The difference between Santa Claus and Jesus is:
    Jesus is a real person who sacrificed himself for the sins of the world
    Santa Claus is a fictional character created by the marketing. Jesus is the true main character, since we celebrate his birth and in familiar union Santa Claus is a commercial character that is prompting for buying gifts for share. Jesus helped the world spreading the word of God preaching it uniting the people while Santa Claus distributed gifts. In Christmas there has only one character that is Jesus

  9. When I read this article, I was amazed at the difference that put the boy between Santa and Jesus. Actually I think if he's right in the text but exaggerating when he said: Santa Claus is not in the forgiveness business. In fact, it can be a scary guy. He is not just a jolly old elf in the red suit. With Santa's all, "You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I'm telling you why, Santa Claus is coming to town." And worse, Santa is spying on you. "He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake, he knows if you've been bad or good. That's a bit exaggerated because Santa is a good man who gives great meaning of Christmas to children and what children think love.

  10. 1. Do you agree with the boy´s opinion?
    Yes, because the boy has a very excellent opinion of the differenece of Santa Claus and Jesus, but other children have excenllent opinios but I loved this opinion of the boy.

    2. Do you think there is another important difference between Jesus and Santa Claus?
    Yes,because Jesus is the Son of God, our father and Santa Claus is a fictional character that the man has created in the Christmas.

    I don't agree with the kid because he is describing Santa Claus like a bad person, but he is just a guy the people invented to represent Christmas.Santa Claus in my opinion does not exist, but if he did exist he would be a good person, because who would spend a whole night just to give gifts to kids, just a very good person has the will to do that.

    I'm not agree with the boy's opinion, because Jesus never forgive us, he always be here with us in our heart; Santa Claus is only a character dressed of red cloth that increases the sales in this season. I think that Santa don't give us the gifts. The real gift is love of Jesus.

  13. I agree with the boy because santa never forgive you because he is unreal and jesus is real and we belive in him, thats an important difference between Jesus and Santa Claus.

  14. I agree with bthe other children that say that Santa and Jesus are different. I think that there is another difference between them that is about that Santa makes us celebrate for the gifts, but Jesus makes us celebrrate for his birth.

    I think that they are totally different because Jesus is
    God's son and Santa isn't. Santa is encarged of giving gifts and Jesus is encarged of giving love, kindness, solidarity.

  16. I knew all about Jesus and Santa claus, and I agree with that opinion because christmas is more than santa claus and only open presents. I think that in christmas, Jesus is coming to all parts of the world, and we have to celebrate it.

  17. Yes, i agree with him, because Jesus will forgive you, and Santa Claus give gifts or punishes you but never forgive you.
    Yes, i think that is another important difference between Jesus and Santa Claus and it is that Santa comes but once a year and Jesus is an ever present help.


  18. I agree with the boy's opinion. I think that another difference is that Jesus help us and Santa Claus not.And now the children more care about the gifts at Christmas.
