Is Santa Real?

Based on this forum topic Is Santa Real I did a video. Here are my written thoughts.

Santa Claus has always been a very endearing part of my childhood but never a major part. I remember waking up for the month prior to Christmas every morning hoping that the day had come early and checking my stocking eagerly. When it did come it was always exciting but the reality is that Santa is just the vehicle for which gifts were given. He is the proverbial tortilla chip to the salsa of gifting. And even then he was only one chip as he only filled our stockings and did not give us larger wrapped gifts as he did in some families. So I think I am okay playing the game with my children though I appreciate that my parent’s did not make a larger deal out of him than they did.

Santa is okay in my book.
