Felix: Do you guys remember when you stopped believing in Santa?
Shawn: Santa ain’t real.
Jane: Some of us haven’t stopped.
Felix: Okay, okay, let me re-phrase the question. Why do you believe in such a made up thing?
Jane: What makes you think Santa is fake?
Felix: Aw, I see how your playing this. So, you want me to believe that a heavy-set old white dude got the time and effort to go from house to house and individually know everyone deserving of a gift.
Shawn: Sounds nearly impossible but some how that jolly sun of a gun gets it done, year after year.
Jane: I mean the logistical aspect seems unrealistic, but why be a Grinch when you can be a happy camper enjoying the holiday.
Felix: Oh I don’t have a problem with Christmas, but Jane your a intelligent person, why can’t you just admit that Santa isn’t real.
Jane: I can’t say those words because I truly believe that we need Santa in our lives.
Shawn: I get it, my question is when did little Felix stop believing in Santa Clause?
Jane: let’s go straight to the root.
Felix: I did at one point believe in Santa. I did all the bs you do. I wrote him letters, I did my best to be on the nice list, and I even left the guy milk and cookies on Christmas Eve. But one year I heard a noise in the middle of the night, I went to see if maybe Santa already made his appearance. I walk into the living room and see my uncle eating the cookies, dipping them them in milk. Santa died that year. I grew up and pretended to not care.
Jane: So what if you saw your uncle eating Santa’s cookies, that doesn’t mean anything.
Shawn: I mean if you think about it, Santa probably gets millions of cookies, your uncle was just helping him out.
Felix: I don’t know how I feel about that.
Jane: I know we live in this consumer world and the commercialization of Christmas gets us kinda wanting all this extra stuff, but I also believe that there is this spirit that comes out of us during the holidays.
Shawn: I was out drinking with some of my buddies the other weekend and we started talking about energy and what it means to have a soul, and how when someone dies and that person’s soul gets kept with those that were influenced by that someone that passed away.
Jane: I totally believe that theory, maybe the real Santa did exist and by keeping that memory and spirit alive, we are repersenting that soul.
Felix: I want to be a believer, and yet I’m still just not willing to be that gullible about a soul that I never knew.
Jane: Correct, you personally never met the guy, but you know people that had that connection to him, so for the sake of showing your apperciation to the ones you know, just giving the idea of Santa a little bit of a break.
Felix: I mean there are millions of people in the world and how can something so impossible be just understood.
Shawn: You know what I think, I think Santa’s sliegh is also a time machine and he’s able to manipulate time and by being able to alter the duration of the night, he has all the time he needs.
Felix: So Santa knows how to time travel and by that logic, going into millions of houses is not that impossible.
Shawn: I mean we don’t know what he’s up to at the North Pole, he could be plotting something so incredible and we’re just getting a taste of the magic.
Jane: A Christmas miracle.
