    Hey AGEP! I'm calling you out. You say you don't believe in Santa.   But can you prove that he doesn't exist?

    Culturally, Santa is a subject of fiction.

    We have our Asian fellows celebrating an oriental sumo with a beard. The Spanish believe he is a Turkish bishop that sails over see and delivers presents on a white horse; his jolly garments being holy robes. The Dutch describe Santa as a fat white man driving a slave powered...
