Thanks for reminding us. Merry Christmas everyone!

The picture of the santa apparently snarling like a dog and reaching out to grab someone may give me nightmares, and I'm a grownup. I hope no kids see it.

Sweet letter…

Still, couldn’t help thinking that given enough time (to play the multi-generational telephone game), this is exactly how religions get started.

Without the competition of the Bronze Age religions, in a few hundred years we would no doubt have Santa Claus churches in every town.

i have mostly grown children and to this day my wife and I have not said one thing about the "reality" of Santa. Christmas and Santa mean the same thing. there is no need to place doubt in a world that is full of doubt! Hollywood would parade falsehood as reality, but then, for the most part, miss out on the reality of the most important truths. Santa lives, if only in the hearts of the true believers.

Bountiful, UT

My parents taught me that Santa Claus was a reality. I didn't do this to my own children. I didn't think it was right. Instead I taught them kindness, the Golden Rule and their responsibility to help people who are less fortunate.

Yes thank you Santa for bringing joy and happiness to 1000s of gay Utah couples,no more prop H8TE pleeze.
