As someone who wasn't brought up in a Christian household, I've always held a bitter curiosity towards Christmas and Santa Claus. Every year, my friends would look forward to it for weeks and then rave about the presents they got for weeks after. It annoyed me to no end. The one time where I feel like I got some degree of schadenfreude'esque satisfaction was when the kids I knew found out Spoiler Santa Claus wasn't real. Their disappointment pleased me to no end. I think I want to relive some of that right now. Plus, it is the middle of June, so what better time to have a Christmas related thread? Spoiler Focus: Santa Claus. Did you believe in him growing up? How did you find out he wasn't real? How did you feel when you found this out? Alt. Focus: If you have kids, do they believe in Santa Claus? When will you tell them the truth? If you think you'll have kids in the future, will you have them believe in Santa Claus? Why or why not? *Bonus points for recognizing the quote that is the thread title.
