I find it sad that people are beginning to take such a negative view on Christmas and Santa. I'm sure that even if Santa wasn't around, kids are still exposed to TV and the Internet etc. and would still ask for just as many presents. Without Santa however, it's a lot harder to cover up the reason your child hasn't got the 84 gifts they asked for that year!

Why would a parent want santa to get credit for the new thing that child so deeply wanted all year and waited for why? Why would i let them look at some random man with joy of knowing what this false gift giver was going to give them when it was us the parents who brought them the gift?

All these people attacking a childs belief in Santa, Most likely the same people who go on about how much the world sucks.
You've grown up, supposably. Why do you feel the need to want to destroy a childs belief? It says volumes about where your mind is at. All you're doing is projecting some unhappiness you have on to children. GET HELP!

I'm so sorry to be living now a days.
People are so openly bashing EVERYTHING; bashing religion, bashing Christmas, bashing Santa; and seems the majority is all for war war war and me me me.
What is wrong with everyone? Why is it so much of a horrendous thing to let children believe in someone that, even though he doesn't exist in the physical sense, still existed in the flesh and made a LOT of people happy and still does to this day? He basically exists in the heart and soul of those who chose to believe in him. What is the issue? If it puts a happy smile on a childs face and then the parents faces and which ever else adult's faces may be around, what is the harm? : (no reason given)
