Do Xmas movies push the idea people don't believe

    Everyone talking about him, all the media on board, news reports about Santa flying etc etc, by the minute tracker on Xmas Eve, if you just arrived on earth you would find it hard not to believe. The only dissenting voices are ironically from Xmas movies. They are putting the idea into kids heads. They wouldn't even question it

    I cringe at a lot of them. The tim allen ones are dreadful if you have a believer who might be nearing the end

    The Santa Clause movie pushes way too much on how dumb it is for a small child to believe in Santa.

    RTÉ news would be saying he’s due to arrive around midnight. After saying he’s just left the North Pole shortly before 6.30 Irish time. But he’s already visited Russia and Australia by that point. The Santa tracker would say he’s been here about 11. Local online newspapers would be saying they’ve seen a light in the sky at 9.30!

    Could they not get their stories straight!

    He was due about midnight and arrived at five to midnight. At least that part of their story is straight. :)

    I think The Polar Express spends to much time talking about Believe.
    One year The Late Late spent ages talking about toys being affordable for parents!
