Christmas Tree Safety
The Grinches have grossly exaggerated the danger of fire from real Christmas trees. Modern LED (Light-Emitting Diode) lights use very low voltages, currents and temperatures and thus pose almost no risk at all. It is time to ban the true culprits from apartment buildings — incandescent lights, not the fir trees that exude the evergreen fragrance of Christmas.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)

Should you trick your children into believing in Santa Claus?
- It will inoculate them against Christians selling their batshit crazy religion. They will be more sceptical of wild, implausible claims.
- You will get a short period of bribed compliance.
~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
- It will harm their trust in you.
- You will have to buy twice as many presents.
- It will teach your children to accept gifts from strangers.
- Your kids will be laughed at as babies by their peers.
