Santa Claus is the Mythical God of Materialistic Gluttony
I was shocked to learn that there are parents out there who are telling their kids that Santa Claus is real. There are 7 and 8 yr old kids who think Santa is real. Since when did this become a thing? Santa Claus was a sweet joke when I grew up in the 80s. No one was stupid, irreligious enough to actually believe in him. When I was a kid I baked cookies for Santa, knowing full well it was my Dad who would eat them. I watched the ‘Santa Tracker’ knowing full well it was all made up. Santa was just a bit of holiday fun. Even as a kid, I knew that the whole point of Santa was to displace Christ and promote shopping.
