I bet k_docks is the kind of person that sends hate mail

Addressing people by surname only is for prisoners

About the whole father christmas thing, yes, i think it is becoming boring.

At the very least the story needs some updating.

Young people are not that stupid, i mean a big man with a fat beer belly, is going to squeeze himself down many millions of narrow chimney's in the few hours that he has each year, and not get himself stuck ;)

Then there's the fact that many modern homes that have been built in recent decades, do not have open fireplaces... but have radiators instead

Please do not fall into the same trap as the religons... refusing to update the story of Father Christmas to move with modern times.. just in order to keep the tradition
