    I know i'm giong to get alot of posts for this but i want to just see what will come up. Usually kids start to outgrow the myth of santa at about 8-10 yrs. old. Not me i'm twelve and still believe. It just adds to the christmas feeling. Well if u want to discuss this then post away on ur thoughts. :D

    :grin:
    I am a mother therefore I am not smaller, but I believe in my heart to Santa.
    He renders happy to believe me, in a world like ours where we see many ugly things, living in the "magical world" of Santa renders the life beautifulr....
    I BELIEVE IN SANTA :smile:


    Io sono una mamma quindi non sono più piccola, ma io credo nel mio cuore a Santa.
    Mi rende felice credere, in un mondo come il nostro dove vediamo tante brutte cose, vivere nel "mondo" magico di Santa rende la vita più bella....
    IO CREDO IN SANTA :smile:

    I believe in Santa, too. He is VERY real.

    It amazes me that people can encourage their kids to believe in comic book heroes like Spiderman or to pretend with characters from the movies like Mickey Mouse but they completely discount Santa Claus.

    Santa was a real person who loved Christmas and served people. He was one of us. Real. Flesh and blood. And he acted and believed in things we want to emulate.

    To me, he was the model for how Christmas should be celebrated.

    Santa - real or imagined?

    This is a really good question, not something to be taken lightly or just dismissed. I have spent a lot of time thinking about it and wondering what people mean when they ask such a question. Are you asking if Santa ever existed? I think history answers that for us. Is he still climbing down chimneys today? Ah, there's the $60,000 question. In many ways I would have to say yes. Not just one guy in one sleigh doing the rounds, but I see it as the spirit of Santa in the hearts of millions who are doing the work for him. And where did Santa get his spirit of giving? From the giver of all good gifts, God Himself. This is what I believe. :smile: :smile:

    If he weren't, then why would I be dangling my truck keys in front of his face all the time?

    I'll say he is.

    When I was younger, my sister and I used to get letters from Santa right inside our stockings (along with any presents he left us).

    And about the leaving milk and cookies for him? I find also that to be true.

    Dan, The Man.I am 70 years old and I can't wait every year for it to be Santa time. Who else would be on my roof with a bunch of deer---especially one with a red nose. He certainly makes me feel very happy the next day and it seems all my grand children are just as happy with Santa as I am. "You Gotta Believe".

    Well.. honestly? I know there isn't someone that comes round our houses and leaves presents. I think it's nice to think there is though. There once was St Nick, as every1 knows, Santa was created as a character representing St Nick. St nick was real but isnt anymore, Santa was made TO REPRESENT him, this doesn't mean its a real person. Santa to me is just Christmas, If you think of christmas it's Santa. I am 13 and stopped believe in this MYTH around 10-11 yearz old so not that long ago. I believe in the spirit of the whole thing. But no, Santa as a person isn't real. :-D

    I think the question is now is, how can you not believe in him? The evidence is more than overwhelming.

    people believe in aliens, whats so hard to believe about Santa? Little green men with big eyes who have mastered interstellar flight & the best they can do is make pictures in cornfields, kidnap Cletus the slackjawed yokel, & mutilate cows. Yeah thats so much easier to believe. I'll go with nice guy with the reindeer who brings me gifts thanks

    I had a child ask me "Are you real?".

    I grabbed my arm, then my nose, and cheek and said, "Well, I feel real!"

    whats so hard to believe about santa claus?
    He's chubby: I see that everyday next
    reindeer fly: How do you know they dont? Because nobodies ever seen it ? Theres a fish that scientist had thought was extinct because nobody had ever seen a live one. Then one day a fisherman caught one & now theres been numerous sightings. Just because you dont see it, doesnt mean its not there. next
    he visits so many houses in one night? I believe someone smarter than I explained this already, but if you dont believe that, theres ways to bend time & traverse dimensions & make these things happen. Next
    oh you dont have any other arguments? thats right doesnt sound so silly now does it?
