As I was doing a christmas quest on Maestia I saw the npc of santa. I remembered one christmas that I was so shocked when I received a gift from santa. No one told me to whom it came from but my mom and dad as well as my aunts and uncles said that it was from santa! Weird as it may sound, I still believe in santa until now. You? Do you still believe in Santa?

"Santa", as in the fat jovial guy from Coca Cola ads, is just what he is - a fat jovial guy from Coca Cola ads. The origins go way deeper than that overcommercialized bull****.
On the 6th of december, mostly in Europe I guess (?), Saint Nicholas Day is celebrated, and on that occasion, here in Switzerland many "Samichlaus" and "Schmutzli" wander the lands with donkeys giving away peanuts, mandarin oranges and chocolates to kids. Surfing the net I found a nice summary of this tradition on a most unexpected blog (don't worry, it's nothing bad). Just click the image:

So to end this, no I don't believe in Santa nor all those disguised people, but there is a certain origin to it and it is more satisfying than thinking it all comes from soda ads :P

We haven't had a white christmas for years, and this time it was even almost as hot as autumn or early springtime -.-

I always loved my 5th grade science teacher's argument about how Santa wasn't real when this one kid got real annoying insisting he was.

If Santa was real, the speed at which he would have to travel to reach every person celebrating Christmas in one night would result in all the reindeer, Santa, the sled and the presents bursting into flames due to the extreme air friction.

Nope, when I was a kid, I stayed up late one night, Christmas night. I pretended to be asleep and saw my mom and dad put out the presents, even the ones that said "Santa"

As far as I can remember, I never even got a present from Santa. I guess my parents wanted to spare me the horror of finding out hes not real. In fact, I don't think I had even heard of Santa until I started school. Oh well....

Santa is real, he lived in the 16th century (give or take a couple hundred years), and was a bishop in the Church, he was famous for dropping money into a poor man's chimney so he could care for his daughters.

(so long since I read the story, I am sure I have several errors)

Not quite. St. Nicholas was born in the third century and became bishop of Myra (then-Greek, now-Turkey). According to legends of course... The chimney thing came later, the first version tells how he threw gold in from the window so that the poor man could give reasonable dowry for their daughters.
