oh, and I hated taking those pictures because it was so silly to pretend I didn't notice there were a million different Santas in different store.

i do santa for the same reason i tell my children the goldfish went to heaven as opposed to explaining decomposition. or the true horrors that took place on thanksgiving-fantasies and tradition are a healthy part of childhood (and adulthood i've heard)

My mom used to put gifts for herself under the tree and pretend they were from Santa...too funny watching her pretend. I guess I shouldn't laugh though because she tried so hard.

I don't know, pretty young. When I was five I stormed out of school assembly refusing to sing hymms. When the teacher told me to sit down I refused saying I didn't want to sing christian songs because I wasn't a christian. When she looked shocked I replied

"If I don't believe in santa I'm not going to believe in god, am I"

I was a little brat.

Fantasy is one thing; lying is another.

I don't know. I guess I kind of always knew, but part of me, even today, still wants to believe in Santa. Even if he isn't a single person. It's the thought, the idea, the whole thing Santa stands for that I want/need to believe in.


this made me smile-agreed.

I see where you're coming from PrettyinPeace. I admit that when I have children my view about this whole thing may change.
