I was reading a newspaper yesterday when I came across a reference to an old article.
The original article appeared last month and apparently hit newspapers across the world, so I’m not sure how I missed it.
Are these so called experts for real?
When I was a kid, I believed in Santa. It was a magical source of wonderment and excitement. He was also a great source of extra little gifts. As I grew older I began to have my suspicions, not helped by older kids I used to pal around with. Eventually my parents [quite casually] confirmed my doubts and Santa was relegated to the realm of infancy. Did I resent the fact that my parents had “lied” to me about Santa? Not a bit. I was grateful to them for the magic and the pretence. I realised that not believing in Santa was part of growing up, like going to bed later or wearing long trousers.
But these evil [I can think of no other word] “experts” are saying that Santa should be abolished entirely as generations of kids are being taught that lying is acceptable. They want kids to live in a sterile world that lacks colour or magic. Where do they draw the line? Is all fiction to be banned? How about religion? If Santa is a lie then by the same token, so is God. They can’t have it every way. Santa is after all just a childish representation of adults’ God – an invisible presence who judges all and decides our fate accordingly?
I have strong feelings about Santa. I abhor the modern commercialised version – the Ho Ho Ho variety and the ubiquitous red and white fatso that has apparently become the symbol of Christmas – but the Santa that the kids believe in is a different matter altogether. He is a representation of magic and wonderment for kids throughout the world.
I can only imagine that these cunts and their “truth about Santa” bilge had miserable childhoods. Where they brought up in a miserable and sterile world where there was no make believe? Do they really want to abolish a bit of childhood happiness in the name of Political Correctness?
They truly are evil.
