Santa Claus – A major twist on the mainstream story

Things that make you go hmmm. This is a reminder that there’s always more to learn about Christmas. Fact is Santa Claus is one of capitalism’s main mascots. That remains true.  That’s huge! Let’s never forget that. There’s nothing natural about the “gimmies” many people have every November/December. Make sure that your children know who really gives them Christmas gifts. Better yet ensure that they express their gratitude via phone calls, handmade cards etc.
