To the kids do understand that the gifts are not limitless. That from their list Santa chose a select few to bring them. They also konw they aren't easily replaceable since they are from Santa. Even though they see the same thing in the store, it isn't FROM SANTA.

To the rest, they just sound like ungrateful kids who wouldn't be happy with anything. It has nothing to do with Santa.


Maybe you've never known anyone who uses Santa that way. My family is that way , my grandma said stuff like that all the time. So, no. Not from movies.
