A thought crossed my mind as I read the most recent thread about Santa Claus...

Why do parents want their children to believe that Santa exists? Legend has it that there was such a character in the past, who would bring food to the poor, and would enter through the chimney because their houses were completely covered in snow.

But why do parents still try to convince their children that the presents they get for Christmas are courtest of a fat bearded man who knows more about you than the CIA and travels faster than the speed of sound?

Why can't parents just give their children presents? Isn't that a sign of love? And isn't love what christmas, or any other winter holiday is all about?

I have nothing against bearded men (Billy Gibbons FTW) but why spread such a belief? The kids will find out, anyway.

Thoughts?

And rape, although always an option, is not the answer I'm expecting.

To make kids be aware all the time, knowing the the possibility of a fat hooded man offering you presents and to take a ride in his sleigh while he rides your sleigh..


Where am i going with this?

It teaches you to ACCEPT presents from a fat man in a sleigh...

Actually, it makes you wait all year for a mysterious fat man in a sleigh to offer you presents...

Hasn't this thread already been done this Christmas?
Some people wait a lifetime, some simply accept...

...Some of us crash land, some of us eject...

...Some restore the blood flow, some just let it go and bleed...

...Some of us obsess, some move on to something new

Its to give children something to look forward to. Make them happy. Some kids don't get it any other time of the year.

Santa as a sort of "mascot" for christmas, like the Easter bunny, I can understand.

But why convince your kids that he comes to your house on the night of the 24th of December?

It adds to the magic off christmas ^_^ Seriously now I really couldn't be bothered with christmas but when I believed in him it was so much fun and just made everything awesome. So neeeeeeeeer :p

I think it's to instill a sense of magic and wonder in the children,then set them up for soul crushing disappointment when they find out that the fat man isn't real.It's just like the Tooth Fairy,the Easter Bunny,Abe Lincoln,and Frosty the Snowman,all of them are mythical beings created to make kids have more fun.
