The news tonight showed some people mad at their church youth pastor because he told them the true origion of Santaclaus.  Some of the kids are pretty young (one example girl is eight) and the parents said he spoiled their Christmas by telling them there isn't a real Santaclaus.  The paster defended himself by saying Christmas is supposed to be about Christ, not Santaclaus. 

See the trouble parents can get into by lieing to their children?

I don't see why this is a big deal.  I learned it that "St. Nicholas" was the origin of "Old Saint Nick" aka "Santa Claus".
