Does Santa exist? An interesting question posed by Derek. Well in fact yes he does but not in the format of the lie (strong word) told to children.I may be wrong here, but, wasn't Santa along with the Christmas Tree something foisted, again if thats the right word, on us by Prince Albert the Consort of Queen Victoria. Albert was German, and if I am correct introduced Christmas Trees to Britain. Santa Claus is a corruption of Santa, Saint, Claus, Nicolas patron saint of children. I would also agree with previous comments Jesus was most likely to have been born in April or thereabouts.


There are many, many individuals within our history who have been attributed with the name of Santa as a result of their benevolence and kindness. My origins lay in Germany where every year, on the 6th December, we would put out our shoes for St Nicholas to either fill with coal, if we were bad, or sweets, when we were good. But even that was a massive lie and a potential problem for sensitive children who could not understand the reason why their parents lied to them. Are they lying when they say that smoking damages your health or heroin can kill you?

To me Cymru, it seems obvious what is happening here. Santa, an anagram of Satan, is taking away the true meaning of Christmas. He is being replaced by a fat old man dressed in red who sneaks into our children's bedrooms at night to give them presents. Sounds a bit like grooming to me. It is a blatant lie. The scriptures tell us not to bear false witness, yet fine upstanding parents, all over the world, are lying to their children and then, when it suits them, they tell the truth and expect their children to just accept it. It doesn't sound much like striving to be like Jesus, does it? Maybe I am a bit of a humbug, however, I find Santa a real distraction to the celebrations of the birth of Christ.
