Question: Do you Believe?

A Chicago-based newscaster was angrily criticized because she ranted about economic woes and warned against creating unrealistic expectations of children through a fictionalized Santa Claus. She declared that Santa did not exist. She was denounced by her online colleague, people on the street, and angry callers to the TV station.

Watch the face of children and adults as Santa visits their town or a nearby mall. They all want to catch a glimpse of him and spend a moment with this magical omniscient man who brings happiness into the lives of many. He brings hope and promise. Although he is largely an icon of a commercialize Christmas season, do you still believe in him?
