    Default Santa Claus

    Ho Ho Ho! Christmas is just around the corner so what better time to talk about the shattering of young children's dreams.

    My question is will you/do you agree with telling children the brutal truth or will you go along with the beautiful lie to make their childhood magical? What did your parents do with you?

    I'm confused. How is telling kids that Santa is real, a lie? How dare you sully the good name of the Patron Saint of Prostitutes.

    Honestly, I see zero harm in telling kids about Santa. Christmas is always fun at my family's house because even though we all know Santa isn't real, we still all act like it's him bringing in all the gifts and it just makes the celebration much more magical and memorable.

    Of course. Santa is real.






    "Are you kidding me? Of course Santa is not-"





    Shut up, Santa is real.

    Of course kids should believe in Santa. But I mean kids, not people who act like kids. Really it can be used as an incentive for good behaviour, like religion and the almighty God. But eventually people grow up, and figure stuff out. The problem is what is good behaviour and to whom? Lol are their Christmas extremists, if Trump doesn't comply with reindeer immigration, is there going to be problems? If an illegal elf rapes an American woman, are all the elves who immigrated to America going to be under attack? How will Hilary Clinton propose to address the elves, we might hurt they're feelings by calling them elves; because that name implies that they are alive just as child slaves who make toys for the white man. Isn't it racist that we haven't installed special elf access toilets? What gender should we address the working elves who may cross-dress or "experiment", I mean it is a closed economy; that North Pole.

    I mean common people.

    Creativity is certainly about not being constrained by rules or accepting the restrictions that society places on us. Of course the more people break the rules, the more likely they are to be perceived as ‘mentally ill’.

    But it's not. ?

    It's just a lame joke.

    I thank my parents for making me believe in Santa as a child because it made everything about Christmas fun and magical. Now that I have my own kids I do the same for my them because I want them to enjoy their childhood and have fun especially when it come to Christmas and Santa.

    There is more to it than the magic. It's about developing faith in something that has yet to be garnered/achieved/realized, the "intangible". This sets them up for success. Also, once they realize the lengths that their parents went to in order create and maintain the illusion, they will have a greater understanding of how much they were/are loved, and will have greater capability in showing another person how special they are to them.

    That's the idea behind it, but like anything; people's understanding of concepts vary greatly.
