Frosty is Jesus!
It's taken me 40 years to realize this -- Frosty is Jesus! Here are just a few of the uncanny parallels:
It's all about rebirth. The kids believe! (his disciples and followers), while the Evil Magician (Pontius Pilot/John the Baptist) is trying to squash him. He goes away, into a greenhouse (a cave), where his true friend, a girl (Mary Magadaline) weeps bitter tears over his apparent death. But then! Santa (God) gives the lowdown that he will return. And there's a bunny (Easter) who is cute and fun and puffy.
Think about it. But what a fun way to be indoctrinated ...
