tbhouston: or how about you don't lie to your kids?

Came here to say this.

My parents sold me the Santa myth at the same time they were telling me about God and Jesus, so in my little mind they were all entwined together - the invisible guy watching over you to make sure you're nice and not naughty, celebrating Jesus' birthday. So when I found out that the two people I trusted most in the world had lied to me year after year about one invisible sky fairy (and trust me, it was devastating to learn the truth), I automatically assumed they had lied about a lot of other things too. God being one of them. I never trusted authority after that. They lie.

Easy. Just tell all the kids everywhere Santa is made up, then turn Xmas into a holiday about reason and critical thinking.

It would be more symbolic if Santa came in riding a huge cash register anyway.

Son, you're 32 years old now and it's time to realize that Santa is a silly myth.

Santa can't die.

Because he's not real, but that's beside the point. There is no Santa the First or Santa the four hundredth. There has always bee only one Santa.

Because he's immortal.

He's the Highlander.
