Santa is SATAN
He questions reality to the point parents are expected to lie to their children.
Parents have to give up credit to One who extorts compliance (to be submissive is "being good.")
Santa plants the idea that there might be something better than honesty.
Is trust something to play with? How often is deception for fun traumatic?
There is no reality . . we are deluded on purpose.
To Give (/sharing) is the test of honesty.
