I'm uncomfortable with the way that the two major Christian holidays, Christmas and Easter, each have an unrelated fairy-tale version for kids. What does Santa Claus have to do with the birth of Jesus Christ? What does the bunny have to do with His resurrection?

I wouldn't want Hannukah, Passover, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur or any other holiday to be changed in that manner. To me, it keeps them more real and more meaningful.

(With my apologies to anyone who might be offended by this)
