When I read that 52 percent of American adults say they believe in Santa Claus (according to a survey from Public Policy Polling), I wasn’t surprised to learn in the same poll that 42 percent also believe there is a “war on Christmas.”
After all (spoiler alert), both are figments of the imagination.
Belief in Santa, at least, perpetuates a spirit of joy and goodwill.
But the “war on Christmas” narrative, by contrast, does little more than stir up anger and ill will.
