  • I believe in Santa!!! Always have, always will. When I was younger and found out there was no actual person who came into my house on Christmas Eve (which, thinking back, it's kind of a creepy thought, ROFL!), my mom explained that she still believed. I asked her how and she said that the spirit of St. Nick lives on and is that reason that you feel compelled to do good for others and make others happy. I thought she was off her rocker, but as I get older and now that I have kids of my own, I know exactly what she means!

  • 100%... Just as you said.. He lives in all of us..
    I am all about the magic of Santa & the Easter Bunny, ect... They only believe for 10yrs (if that)... they have the rest 50-80yrs of their life to truely understand "the Real meaning of Christmas" ....

  • Actually, Santa was a real person. Here is a link all about him: http://www.stnicholascenter.org/Brix?pageID=38

    In the Orthodox Christian church (and possibly the Catholic church as well) he is celebrated/remembered/commemorated on December 6 each year. He was a Greek and helped many of his parishioners - most notably (and this is where the gift-giving comes from) he anonymously gave gold coins to three young girls who would have had to become prostitutes because they could not afford a dowry. His gold provided the dowry so they could marry respectably.

  • I do believe, and I tell my 9 year old this. She is one of very few, if any, of her classmates that still believe. When she tells me others who don't, I just say, "Well that's so sad for them," and she agrees.
