Overview

Is Santa Claus real?

The range of opinion regarding Clausite existence spans the complete gamut, from outright denial ("There's no such thing as Santa Claus") to fervent affirmation ("Yes there is and shut up"). And yet, after six-point-two jillion (approximately) years of human history, neither side has so far been able to dissuade the other, leaving both entrenched in their respective positions. Until now.

For the first time, the thorny question of whether Santa Claus is real is definitively and hilariously answered. Ellis Weiner, the co-author of the best-selling Yiddish with Dick and Jane, gets to the very heart of this cultural and marketing icon whose existence continues to bedevil inquisitive children, befuddled parents, and toy retailers around the world. Using the kind of erudition and reasoning employed by the world's most advanced thinkers (and those people who make up standardized-test questions), Weiner offers five unimpeachable arguments for Santa's existence that are as inspired as they are insightful.

But wait, there's more: Readers will learn far more than just whether Santa Claus is real. Weiner also explores the history of Santa, the existence of napkins, and the subtle but crucial distinctions between birthday cake and fruitcake--all copiously footnoted for reading pleasure.

Illustrated throughout (for those who get tired of looking at all those words), this book clarifies, once and for all, the truth about Santa Claus.

So does Santa exist?

Of course he does, you ninny.
