It's about understanding and appreciating the value of where they actually do come from....hard work and sacrifice.

As I said, this isn't why we don't do Santa, but that is what I would think.

I don't do Santa because he's not 'the reason for the season'. And because I don't do character things.

But as for credit, I guess I would agree with the quoted.
