* In TheSantaClause, what the Hell happened to the old Santa's Mrs. Claus? The second film clearly established that every Santa needs one, but she's never mentioned. Speaking of which, why is no one really mad at Scott for ''killing Santa''?

** The classic ''MiracleOn34thStreet'' gives an answer. The Santa in that film is (probably) real, but most of his work in that film is impressing on adults that their kids want X and would they please get an X for the kid? And removing obstacles for getting the X.

** Not good enough. According to the spreadsheets, you're .0024 Mother Theresas per Year under the requirement to get a train set of that level, and that second-stage cursing put you even further back for next year. Mall Santas don't always send their updated request lists to HQ anyway, especially since [[MiracleOn34thStreet The Incident]], which just puts even more strain on the system. At least you weren't bad enough to get [[ConsequenceCombo Black Pete]]... this year.

** MiracleOn34thSteet actually sort of explains it. The DA (whose trying to prove that Kris should be committed) doesn't believe because he didn't get a certain present (I think a baseball glove, but I'm not sure) as a child. It's suggested that Santa can't always get everyone what they want.

*** The superluminal part can be, to some degree, debunked. Santa Claus doesn't have to visit all houses in the world, only house with children, and only houses with Christian children, and not all in the same day, mind you, as different countries has different dates for the delivery of the presents (for example, in Mexico is in January 6th and in Russia is January 7th, and so on. [FridgeBrillance probably that's why different areas have different days for the gift deliverance, as Santa Claus can't deliver them all in the same date]

** If I were in that situation I would use the Santa lie causing pain to the parents and not the poor kids, as for example tellig the kids: "Yes, Santa do exists, and he can bring you absolutely anything you ask; any videogame console, any toy no matter how rare or expensive, any pet no matter how exotic", then technically I'm not doing anything wrong, the Santa myth does have those characteristic, I'm not telling the kids that Santa Claus doesn't exists, even more, I'm confirming it and no one gest hurt, except the parent's pocket but they where the ones who tell the lie in the first place. Of course that depends if I dislike the parents and/or if the parents are not poor people (in which case it will be pretty cruel). Is a fun way to handle the issue.
