Oh no, Santa:

If you stop believing in Santa you get socks.

What nationality is Santa Claus?
North Polish

The 4 stages of life:
1. You believe in Santa Claus
2. You don't believe in Santa Claus
3. You dress up as Santa Claus
4. You look like Santa Claus

The awkward moment when Santa Claus has the same wrapping paper as your parents.

Dear Santa,
This year, please give me a big, fat bank account and a slim body. And please, don't mix those two up like you did last year.
Thanks.

Christmas is the time when everyone gets a little santamental.

We wish you a Merry Christmas
