  1. I have a two-part answer:

    1) Of course not.

    Do I believe there is a person who lives at the North Pole, makes lots of toys with a team of elves, and flies around the world in one night delivering them? Of course not. Even as a kid I knew that was ridiculous.

    2) Of course.

    Do I believe there is a fictional character that permeates popular culture, particularly at this time of year? How could I not? Every other TV commercial in December shows Santa Claus. There are dozens — no, hundreds! maybe thousands! — of movies featuring Santa or his children or his elves and/or reindeer. After (possibly?) Jesus, there is no other individual more associated with Christmas than Santa Claus.
