As of this post...we are now 2, count 'em, TWO weeks away from the Big Day. And I've found on YouTube a lot of videos posted by users who claim the Big Guy is nothing but a big fat lie...and that angers me to no end. I am 30 years old, and I *still* believe in him. You can call me crazy, or nuts, or cuckoo (not for Cocoa Puffs); but don't call me stupid or dumb just because of my Santa beliefs.
Heck, there are people OLDER than me who still believe in him. You don't even have to be younger than me, or the same age as me, or even older than me; you just have to BELIEVE.
Let me tell you--if Santa were a lie, then so would be the original New York Sun editorial, which you can read here. That spawned an animated CBS special that launched in 2009, that recreates those events.
Also, if Santa didn't exist, we wouldn't have songs about Santa, such as "Up on the Housetop", "Jolly Old St. Nicholas", "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", "The Christmas Song", "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everday", "The Man With the Bag", "My Only Wish (This Year)" (Britney Spears), and "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" (*NSYNC).
To conclude this, I don't mind people telling me "I don't believe in Santa". But I DO mind people telling me "Santa is fake", "Santa is a lie", "Santa is not real", "Santa doesn't exist" (unless it's backed up with a "I don't think that..."); and if we're teaching our kids that Santa is fake/a lie/not real/doesn't exist, we are in reality hurting them...not helping them. We don't want to tell them the above "fake/lie" crap, only to have them break down in tears. So please, I urge you...when you're taking them out to do shopping and so forth, tell them that I sent that editorial. And read it! Gameshowguy2000 (talk) 17:03, December 11, 2013 (UTC)
