She is not prone to confabulation or false memories. Thus I consider her a creditable observer and witness. There is always the possibility that this was a ruse on the part of her parents, or a dream, and as such it should be treated with skepticism and critical thought. However I felt it necessary to throw my evidenciary two cents into the hat.

I heard santa was a mushroom. True story bro.
secrets of Santa Claus
The ancient shamans such as the koyak peoples of russia used to collect mushrooms, dry them by hanging them on trees, then load them into a sack and deliver them on their sled pulled by reindeer. That time of year the snow has covered the walls of the yurts (houses) so the shaman climbs through the smoke hole in the roof.

The problem is, Why do adults not believe in Santa, if their kids are getting gifts that they didnt buy for them and cant be traced to friends and family buying?edit on 21-12-2012 by knightsofhonor because: (no reason given)

To complete his task in six months Santa would have to visit about sixty dwellings a second.
I don't know anything about relativity bubbles, but Santa must be one hella bad mofo....
not to mention his toy making Elves.
Do the Elves get relativity bubbles as well? 'Cause, if not, I don't want them anywhere
near my family
