    No Santa??? Well actually, I am responsible for his absence. He didn't bring me what I wanted for Christmas so I chased him away with a baseball bat. Last I heard he commited Hari Kari.
    Booyah!!

    Hey ridealot...

    If your wife is anything like RangerGirl, you'll be getting a mid-sized lump of coal in your stocking around the holidays!

    I find it ironic that my father-in-law is named Claus, is jolly, enjoys giving gifts, and has a white beard!

    Hehehe...

    Servus!

    The lump is only mid-sized due to the fact that she spent the budget on shoes...

    I guess it could be worse...don't know howright at this moment, but I'm sure it could be!

    Yes, Virginia, (& Pete) There is a Santa Claus
    Editorial Page, New York Sun, 1897

    We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the communication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of The Sun:
    Dear Editor,

    I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?

    Virginia O'Hanlon


    Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

    Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

    Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

    You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

    No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!

    "Not only is there a Santa Claus, but here I am to prove it."
    --Miracle on 34th Street

    I am Santa Claus. I wrap the gifts. I go out and buy the tree. Yes, Santa Claus exists, and here I am to prove it.

    Sometimes I think Joe is Santa.

    But no, I guess not--he posted his photo--too skinny...

    Yep that is about it. Every year I ask for the same thing and she always replies " Unless it is black and will burn for a long time you aren't getting it" All well....

    If I remember correctly, and it has been a LONG time, Santa brought me my first bike, too! Santa Claus does exist and I will loosen the QR of anyone who says otherwise!
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    Rainman I totally agree with with you, what will my 3 year old son think, if he knew that "Santa Doesn"t Exist"

    okay, now Pete, them's fightin' words! Santa does exist! Okay, so I've been way to bad to get anything lately, so I can let ol' Santa slide, and he doesn't need to get my kids anything, cause he knows that we can provide for them.

    In summation, he simply exists.
