I'm not opposed to the stories of St Nicholas. Throw out some stockings, fill with fruit, nuts and trinkets. But I have never liked Santa. Even as a kid.

I'm also not opposed to teaching about Hanukkah even though we don't celebrate it.

But the idea that Santa exists to bring presents to kids? Nope. Not that version of commercialism.

I can't explain why I don't like Santa. I just don't. My parents never did it, I vaguely remember episodes with Santa for other kids, but never remember believing or wanting to.

But anyways, don't want to derail this thread which is not a debate about Santa or not, but about credit for gifts being a reason that other people have given for their anti-Santa stance.
