Why do you have a Santa next to baby Jesus?

One of our displays is called "Kneeling Santa with Christ Child". It is a blow molded plastic display put out by a now-defunct company called TPI in the early 2000's. The Kneeling Santa takes its inspiration from the passage in Scripture that reads, "at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord." In the Kneeling Santa imagery, even Santa Claus, pays respect and homage to the Baby Jesus. Santa removes his Santa hat out of respect, bends down on one knee next to the manger of his Lord, and adores the Christ Child as his King. Essentially it's a way of saying that the traditions around Santa are fine, but they take a back seat to the real meaning of Christmas, the birth of the (very real) Christ child.
