Title

"The Santa Problem" John Fitch IV Column

Description

As with many of his Christmas columns, Cormier addresses the idea of Santa, Christmas magic, and the innocence of childhood. He admits never telling a child that Santa is not real but cannot defend his existence, just as faith or a joke cannot be explained without polluting its existence. Believing in Santa Claus keeps the child alive, so he laments the time that his children no longer believe.
