Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear the word "Christmas" in reference to the December 5th parade that will include Santa?

@Curt - Actually, if you want to be accurate, you should request it be called a "Winter Solstice" parade. That is the true origin of the "reason for the season". The pagan winter celebration was usurped by many religions with the Christian Christmas absorbing many of the ancient rites and traditions to give us what we have today.
