    My Belief Faded In Childhood

    My parents taught us to believe, and in retrospect, I'm not sure why, because I'm now convinced that they actually didn't believe in Santa Claus themselves.  I can only speculate that they thought it would make us better people to believe in Santa. Other kids claimed to...

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

    I Wish I Did Though...

    I like the idea of a santa claus and I used to encourage my children to believe in Santa but then I realised that I'd rather them know the truth after all because then they'll realise that gifts don't just appear out of 'nowhere' - someone actually has to make the effort...

    No one deserves to be miserable forever. If they did something horrible they should make up for it for a certain amount of time and maybe they could finally relive.
