Merry Christmas to James T. and his lovely family! Hope everything is well with you and yours.

I want to read the article, but I'm afraid that it would spoil the complete hilariousness of the article title.

Alright, I bit, I had to read it. And dude's arguing that fairy tales prepare people for being religious...

I'm actually thrown for a loop. I was formulating a joke along the same lines, based on the title but lo and behold, my joke is his argument.

Before I get in Scrooge mode though, I must say that I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas.

Interesting article. Santa makes life better. I don't know that he necessarily prepares children for religion. Rather I see a logic in Santa being more of a catalyst for what most people with faith don't like about Christmas or what it has largely become, i.e. a consumer holiday, spend, buy, consume, practically for the sake of spending, buying and consuming. It's Christmas so you have to spend money, go to stores, buy stuff for people, that's the modern message and Santa does what? He brings you stuff. So when you learn the truth about Santa, Christmas goes from having a touch of fantasy to being cold hard consumerism. It's difficult, at least I think it is, to tie the notion of Santa to perhaps the most sacred religious holidays in Christianity.

Am I overthinking or way overthinking?

If you are a kid, Santa is cool. Believing in Santa is cool. I think it would diminish childhood to not include Santa in it.

Oh! I hope you all had a wonderful day, whatever it means to you, as well!

If nothing else, isn't it a good excuse to be nice to everyone.

Merry Christmas everyone & a safe & Happy New Year!
