In the past decade, there are a lot of people who believe in the existing of Santa Claus. That Santa Claus would be the fairy God mother in fairytale stories who would give everything that they wish for during this Christmas season. I think every young kids have in one way or another believe in Santa Claus. Even I myself, way back when I was a kid, believe in Santa Claus, thinking that santa claus would come during Christmas while I am asleep and drop off gifts. I even prepare santa socks and hang it on our windows at the living room and on my room, hoping that santa would drop some chocolates, which is my favorite. Every Christmas season I believe on this. It might be a tradition of merely a believe. I think believing in Santa Claus might be a show off that people is so hopeful there's somebody who cares. And at this time, I think I don't have the right to say that Santa Claus is not true to my younger cousins because I want them to learn on their own that Santa is not true. My belief changes of time. So do you think santa is TRUE????

Of course when I was younger I believed that Santa was real buy I didn't think he would bring me everything. I was taught or learned by myself that santa gives you what you deserve or needs for Christmas but that was before I knew my parents where the ones being santa. I look forward to see my daughter get excited about satnta and stuff all though I'll teacher that Santa can't give you everything you want. Nobody gets everything they ask for. Santa finds things that we need and some times they can't Benoit under a greet or wrapped up but inside of us. It's always better to give to others that are less then we do and Santa would want us to try to give to others in place of some presents for ourselves. As got older I ask for things the I need not wanted like new clothes when I got to big for my old ones.

To tell you the truth, I have never believed in Santa Claus, as I come originally from a country with no Santa tradition, but a different tradition instead. I liked believing in magic when I was a kid, and in magical things like that, but there's a moment to grow up and move on. If I ever had kids I would probably not lie to them about things like Santa existing, because I see nothing wrong on having presents given by real beings, but that's just my opinion.

I saw Santa going down the street last week. Seriously, this is the truth. He was in sitting in his sleigh with his reindeer in front. He had a long white beard and was waving saying Merry Christmas to everyone. It is true, honest!

Yes i do believe in SC. Even though i am an adult, i still would like to think he is real.. i want to because i want to share these feeling with the kids. We get excited for Christmas, i get excited for Christmas not because i want to get a gift myself, because i just love showering my children with gifts..and sharing them about Santa Claus is also fun..we bond thru that way. It even makes me sad and mad at times hwen there is someone who would retort to my kids that SC is not real. It feels like its not their right to say so.. i know my kids will sooner or later find out the reality but then now is not the right now.. i want them to enjoy the moments first and when they find out the truth they will also find out why i did not tell it to them the first place... because of the magic and fun it brings in our family.

I think Santa Claus is just a cartoon sketch by imagination. The people made those sketch to make the Christmas at it's best. Many of the people wear Santa Claus wearings and they are moved to each of the houses to celebrate Christmas. Actually people do this wearings to get money. So I doesn't think that Santa is true.

Me? I believe Santa Claus when I was just a little kid. But now? nope. Santa is our parents trick to make their children behave well and make good attitudes, positive behavior in order to have gifts. I don't Santa because, we don't know what was his story, how he showed up, or does somebody really seen a real Santa? No one, I guess. We can tell our young ones to believe Santa, its all up to them to believe him continually when they had the knowledge about Santa.

The story of Santa was to give gifts to those that have less then you and to also give to those that we love. Not all gifts needs are things that people want but might need like clothes not toys. Alos to teach kids you can't always get what you want and be greatfull for what you have because there is always someone worst off then you.

I used to believe in Santa Claus when I was a child, but that was when I was a kid. I stopped believing in Santa a little before I was a teenager. I was maybe 10 or 11 years old, when I stopped believing in Santa.

It sounds like you come to realize that Santa simply a fairy tale and he doesn't exist in this mundane world. It only happen in our imagination though. As you say, it was just a story for our children to make - belief, so let it be, and let them to find out the truth. I personally, never see a Santa Clause myself, so I won't believe his existence.

I have watched a lot of movies that tell a story about the life of Santa Claus. I saw Santa Clause was legendary among people who celebrate Christmas. Santa Claus would come to distribute gift for young kids on the whole town. Santa Clause is legend for little kids before they went to sleep. Really, who is Santa Claus? Santa Claus is regular man who wore custom that is precisely described in the story completed with red and white hat tail. He apparently unnoticed when the kids had fallen asleep. In my country, we don't have Santa Claus here, we know only from watching movie or television as well. I am myself don't believe Santa Clause does exist. Moreover, my parents never told us about Santa Claus.

It depends on how you look at this I think. My dad was my Santa Claus. Now we know there was a real person in history that was not just legend but made and delivered gifts to children out of good will. Is this not still true today? I think you are right we all have a desire to believe that someone cares. I want to believe always that someone cares and how I attach that is not as important as the thought. To think of a world that is selfish and without charity is not something I want to in vision in anything other than a sci-fi novel. So I suppose in a way santa can still exist for a moment in time with each good will action that someone does in the world.

You know, I think even at a young age I was pretty skeptical that Santa was real - in fact, I think I was around eleven years old when my parents outright told me that I would need to purchase anything I wanted for Christmas myself! I've gotta say though, one year my sister told me she heard what sounded like hooves on the roof the night before Christmas. She still steadfastly says she did to this day, and she's in her mid-twenties now.
