Isn���t that part of being a Roy> child? Are we right to deny Santa Clause from our children? I am not sure if i ever believed in Santa Clause. I used to help bring the presents in from my Aunt's car & put them under the tree (the presents were stored at my Aunt's house, presumably so that my brother and i would not find them and sneak opening them). By helping put them under the tree I could make sure i knew where all of them were when we went to open them. I don't think anything was lost from my childhood by not having this belief in some gift-giving entity... the gifts came from real people that loved me and wished to bestow presents upon me, and who i gave presents to as well in the same spirit. - mark (now the tooth fairy is another matter entirely... i do remember believing that one at least for a little while...[grin])
