"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! How dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus."
—Francis Pharcellus Church, in one of the most famous editorials of all time.

"He sees you when you're sleeping / He knows when you're awake / He knows if you've been bad or good / So be good for goodness sake!"
—"Santa Claus is Comin' to Town"

"This bell is a wonderful symbol of the spirit of Christmas, as am I. Just remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart."
—Santa Claus - The Polar Express

"I believe in Santa Claus, like I believe in love."
—Santa himself singing "I Believe I Santa Claus," The Year Without a Santa Claus

Shona: You're a dream, who's trying to save us?
Santa: Shona, sweetheart, I'm Santa Claus. I think you just defined me.

Papa Elf: "Well, Buddy, as silly as it sounds, there are a lot of people down South who don't believe in Santa Claus."
Buddy: "What?! Who do they think puts all their toys under the tree?"
Papa Elf: "There's a rumor floating around that the parents are putting them there."
Buddy: "That's ridiculous! There's no way parents could do that all in one night! And what about Santa's cookies?! I suppose parents eat them, too?!"

Yakko Warner: "Wait a minute. Hold the phone! That's not how you spell 'Santa'!"
Wakko Warner: (who'd written 'Santla') "It isn't?"
Yakko Warner: "No, you've got it all wrong!"
Wakko Warner: "Well, how do you spell it, then?"
Yakko Warner: (singing to the tune of 'The First Noel'): "To spell Santa's name is easy to do: you write 'S', 'A', 'N', 'T', and another 'A', too, but no 'L', no 'L', Santa's name has no 'L', and he won't be too pleased if you don't learn to spell."

Lincoln Loud: "Okay, what do you want?"
Lola Loud: "To get a good haul from Santa. See, contrary to popular belief, I am no angel. So, if I'm going to get on Santa's nice list, I have one day to undo twelve months of naughty!"
Lisa Loud: "You're wasting your time. Factoring in sleigh speed, time zone changes, and reindeer bathroom breaks, it is scientifically impossible for this so-called Kris Kringle to deliver gifts to the approximately one billion qualifying children. As you can see, X equals no stinkin' way!"
The Loud House, episode "11 Louds a Leapin'"
