"If my family had left 'Coke` out for Santa, i bet we would have got the most F-ed up toys that had to be assembled..Bikes missing wheels, books with wheels was already a problem.."
That`s what I call a "White Christmas"! But, you`re wrong. He`d probably give you three Christmas`s worth of gifts because he`d fly around the earth three times.

"I've met the kids who never believed in Santa, and they`re little cynical non-nice individuals, mini versions of the people who spawned them and cared more for being accurate than for having fun."
Maybe a better tradition to create non-cynical, nice individuals is to do charitable works with your kids during the holidays rather than to promote a mythical man who gives your kids gifts. Teach them to GIVE rather than to receive all the time. Too many kids are spoiled nowadays and have no sense of empathy for others who are less fortunate. That`s the best gift you could give them.

I decided to tell my kids that Santa Claus is real (for a time) in an effort to preserve a sense of magic in their lives, which I am happy to promote in other areas as long as it's mainly frivolous.

Santa Claus is christianity with training wheels. An omniscient magical being who will give you presents if you are more nice than naughty. By the time you figure out it's a lie, you`re already invested in the next lie.
