There's a difference between childhood fantasies and faith.
Love to. Childhood fantasies are beliefs made up by adults for the purpose of entertaining children and perhaps to some extent setting them up for
belief in an entity for which no real evidence exists. These children susceptible to such unprovable characters are then in a better position to
accept faith in a God later in life.
Faith is loosely based on religion and is made up by adults in order to help them feel better about themselves and feel as though they still have a
'protector' like they did when the were Santa believing children.
Religion incorporates both of the above and is made up by powerful individuals or groups in order to take advantage of these susceptible children/
adults in order to control and divide. It is probably 75% of the reason for the state the world is in today.
Conclusion: Probably best not to EVER believe in Santa!
