The idea of Santa Claus has always struck me as odd. I mean, parents spend a lot of time teaching their children about stranger danger, and not to talk to strangers, or accept candy from them. But video games, scarves, stuffed animals, and ugly socks? Oh sure! Accept those from strangers. Matter of fact, when those strangers break into your house, be sure to leave them milk and cookies. You should also leave some lights on, so it’s easier for them to get around.
Doesn’t it make more sense to properly educate children that when some random stranger breaks into your house in the dead of night, they’re probably there to murder your family? It just seems odd to me that the stranger parents tell their children to trust the most is he whose coat is stained red with the blood of the innocent.
