beautiful customs & ancient legends

Ur en fr├ągespalt i den evangelikala tidskriften Christian Herald 1896 (s 8):

Q: Is it right to ask children to believe in 'Santa Claus'?
A: If told to them as a myth or legend, common to many nations, which has its foundation in the gift of the Christ-child, they will not be led into wrong belief. Many of the most beautiful customs of Christian countries are founded on ancient legends. As the child grows older he will understand the origin and significance of these customs.
