Santa Claus (Religion, Folklore, and Urban Legends)

"There is neither a Santa Claus nor an Easter Bunny, and there are no angels watching over us."

It's slightly worrying if you don't know who Santa is, but for those Scrooges amongst us who bury their head in the snow come Christmas time – he's a well-know figure based on Saint Nicholas. He's known for flying around the world on a sleigh, going down chimneys, and leaving presents in stockings for children, which strangely enough is judged as admirable rather than stalkerish. The Easter Bunny, meanwhile, is known for hiding chocolate eggs around the house and garden on Easter morning. After a disillusioned Veronica hears the verdict to Aaron's trial, she declares that neither Santa nor Bunny exist, which will probably be a shock to the two pre-schoolers actually watching this show. Personally, we think she'll take it all back when she gets a lump of coal in her stocking at Christmas or doesn't receive any eggs, so don't worry, kids, fairy tales do come true! Just think of the girl whose hair was braided by cartoon birds... Oh. Right. Damn.
