Theophilus, I do love the Garfield Clause (claws) lol ;)
Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat (ceremonial articles allowed or forbiden by the Jewish law) and drink;
but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Rom 14:18 For he that in these things [righteousness, and peace, and joy] serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
Rom 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
Rom 14:20 For meat (ceremonial articles allowed or forbiden by the Jewish law) destroy not the work of God.
Santa or no santa has nothing to do with the kindgom of God.
Col 2:20 Since you* died with Christ from the rudimentary elements [or, basic teachings] of the world, why as living in the world are you* submitting to regulations?
Col 2:21 "You* yourselves should not handle nor should you* taste nor should you* touch,"
Col 2:22 which things are all for corruption with the using, according to the commandments and teachings of people, [cp. Isaiah 29:13]
Col 2:23 which are indeed having a reputation of wisdom in self-imposed religion and false humility and severe discipline [or, non-indulgence] of the body, but which are not of any value against indulgence of the flesh.
Santa, or no santa, has no value against unrighteousness.
[ Edited to add, santa or no santa is for certain a debate (not unlike other debates of its kind) satan gleefully uses to distract us from the work of the Kingdom of God...
as Mike so simply stated "Santa Clause is the least of our problems"
