Oh boy, similes taken to an extreme and then translated towards the literal. I'll try to help where I can.
Santa isn't Satan. I've met Satan, he is no "Santa". The only gift Satan wanted to give me was shackles. I could paragraph out the reasons why
but I doubt anyone cares that much.

OT: You see, I take this to heart very deeply, because I always looked at my father as a Santa Claus. So when others tell me that Santa was really
Satan, they are calling my father that name. That`s when the gloves come off. This man had more love in his littlest finger nail, then most of these
people will have in their hearts in a lifetime.
I don't believe I've met your father FiatLux. He sounds like a great man, not at all like Satan's character.
What is Satan's involvement with Santa? When the Christ is taken out of Christmas, he scores. When parents justify lying to their kids, he scores
again. When we decide not to give a dollar to the guy begging outside the mall and a hundred dollars to the shopkeeper inside the mall, he scores
again. Saint Nicholas would be (perhaps is) saddened by these sights as he worked daily to block these shots at our soul (let alone God Himself). It
is a season of joy, of love, and of thanks for the gifts God has given us. So long as we treat it as such, there's no need to worry about spiritual
