Eat, drink and be merry

Posted by Tim on Friday, December 24, 2004 | Permalink

The true meaning of Christmas. Eat, drink and be merry. And give/get loads of pressies. The Baby Jesus? Pah, what did he ever do for me? Father Christmas on the other hand always got me presents as a kid. What a nice bloke.

Seriously though, I do wonder if telling kids about Santa is a good idea. Ok, it's not like telling them that they have to obey contradictory and often absurd rules taken from a book of ancient legends otherwise when they die they'll magically come back to life again and be tortured for eternity, but it's still a lie. I'd be interested in anyone else's views on this (this makes interesting reading if you're bored).

This will probably be my last post this year, so merry Christmas and a happy new year to anyone who's popped by. Don't forget to stock up on Alka-Seltzer!
