It makes perfect sense, then, that some of the best holiday movies of the holiday season are focused on Santa himself. Sure, we all know Santa has Elves and a Workshop, but in Netflixs The Christmas Chronicles, these are actual characters, with lives and jobs that are all their own, keeping him on the straight and narrow. Santa has a unique mix of personality traits, which has made Santa Claus a success as a gift-giving figurehead during Christmas. His friendly personality, open mind, and energetic spirit have helped to make the Holiday Season the joyous time that it is.

Jeff Gilens Santa may have been a product of the 1990s, but you cannot deny just how iconic his take is. How about favorite Santas of all time, Tim Allens 1994 version of the character is Santas best Christmas movie. Despite this seemingly grim concept, 1994s The Santa Clause, with Tim Allen in the lead role, has stuck around as a holiday staple of the classics. These new interpretations and tacks, like a binding contract, a Santa Clause, provide an excellent backdrop to Santa, particularly as Kris Kringles is finally poised to pick up the reins and be at the center of this fantasy world.

While Tim Allen may have been transformed into Kris Kringle by a technicality, this shows that he is really transformed into Santa Claus. While Kris Kringles morphed into Santa by the end of the Netflix series The Christmas Chronicles, he retained his identity as Scott Calvin, and thus is much more a real-life human being than a legend. Since the show is story is that Scott wants to hang up the Santa suit and retire, it makes perfect sense for Charley to come back to his retired self.

The most entertaining, best one-time moment of the film comes when Tim Allen delivers toys the first night as Santa Claus, and the baby girl awakens. Kelly thought Santas vacation idea was also funny, and there are plenty of clever moments throughout this special, which is then bookended by a heartwarming, gorgeously beautiful Christmastime snow scene in the small town of Southtown. The miser brothers are fun to watch, making me laugh each time, not to mention the heartfelt performances of I Believe in Santa Claus and Blue Christmas, which tug on the heartstrings. While practical questions about how Santa is physically capable of physically carrying an unknown number of presents across the globe are still hidden deep within Christmas magic, known only by him, who is over 85 years old, and Mrs. Claus, we are happy to get some additional insights on why the holiday season comes so naturally for him.

Children may still play a game of Santa Claus, though they know that the whole thing is fake. Imaginative play, where children know Santa is only a character in the story, but pretend that he is real, much as they pretend superheroes or other fictional characters are real, is generally considered valuable. Believing in Santa Claus may also be beneficial for a childs development, serving as a pathway for creativity, imagination, and play.

Children are also more likely to believe in Santa if parents have left around evidence around the home that supports the story of Santa Claus. By believing in Santa, children may also come to believe that good behavior is not just, or even mostly, intrinsically valuable, but simply a means of getting the promised rewards and to avoid punishment.

Children need Santa Claus because they have good desires in their hearts, which their parents cannot fulfill, and need someone to listen. If we do that, they will not believe in more important things that we are telling them, like the Truth of Jesus Christ.

The trick, of course, is for us to tell children, again and again, that trees, the Christmas lists, cookies, and glasses of milk are for a round tree, and not for traditions. Because Santa Claus is the lie we tell children, we are not treating Christmas as a mature subject. Yet Christmas, like the spinning top, has much to teach us about ourselves and about the way we have come to comprehend reality.

It is no great surprise that Santa, the elves Santa and his reindeer, fall so well within childrens normal view of the world, particularly in ages five through eight, where testimony and evidence are abundant that it is a live, breathing, cheerful, ol old man.
