   Explain this to your kid: Santa can fly around the world in an open sleigh and jump down chimneys, but it is not safe for him to ride on top of a firetruck in a parade

Santa is a grown-up, that's why.

Santa can't die.

Because he's not real, but that's beside the point. There is no Santa the First or Santa the four hundredth. There has always bee only one Santa.

Because he's immortal.

He's the Highlander.

Santa is setting a good example for kids. Of course he wouldn't get hurt, but a kid might try to emulate him and fall off the firetruck and get hurt.

Duh.

Son, you're 32 years old now and it's time to realize that Santa is a silly myth.

It would be more symbolic if Santa came in riding a huge cash register anyway.

Also, explain to your kids to not talk to strangers, but never mind the fat man creeping around in the chimney who wants you to sit on his lap.

Well, yes.

This is because just prior to Mr. Claus leaving on Christmas eve an elf is sacrificed in sort of a santanic ritual..

Efficient parent - "Because the sleigh has seatbelts and the top of a truck doesn't."

Actually, from the photos, the antique truck is a 1000x better fit anyway.

Rubles have been devalued quite a bit over the years, so you need more of them to get anywhere.

The sleigh is obviously surrounded by an anti-gravity field that allows it to fly, whereas the fire truck is not. Now if you had a flying fire truck, that would be a different story.

Santa is able to do all these things using the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. That's why your parents tell you to go to bed and not try to see Santa. In a parade with all those observers, the probability matrix collapses and he's just a fatass.

Because you've got less athletic ability than an old fat guy, kid.

Let the kid put some of Santas "magic dust" up his nose and he will think he is riding high.

Just tell the kids all the mall guys and parade guys are 'helping' Santa. It will save explanations when Santa is drunk, doesn't know what the kid wants, doesn't "tell Santa the right gifts", has a beard come off, runs into another Santa, doesn't look like the last Santa, or does anything dumb.

Every year at my old elementary school the local fire department would come to the gym and teach fire safety to all of the students. Afterwards they gave gave rides on top of one of the fire engines to a dozen or so students at a time for the entire kindergarten class. They don't do it anymore over liability concerns.

Easy. Just tell all the kids everywhere Santa is made up, then turn Xmas into a holiday about reason and critical thinking.

Santa flies high enough that if he were to fall out, the reindeer would have the time/space needed to catch him before he hit. Not so with fire trucks.

As someone who just rode in a christmas parade, drunk, on top of a fire engine, I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

My Swiss classmate explained that good children get presents but the bad children ares stuffed into a sack by Black Peter who then kicks the shiat out them. The mental image was less of a jolly Moorish blackface character and more like some big linebacker dude shouting "I'm sick of your shiat, you lil bastards, I'm gonna whoop yer asses!"

One year, in the little town I used to live in, Santa had far too much Yuletide cheer before the parade. "Happy Easter! Happy New Year! Merry F**kin' Christmas!"

Yeah, he didn't get re-hired for the next parade.

Santa does NOT deliver presents in an open sleigh to kids all over the world. At the speed he'd have to travel, the shockwave would flatten your house when he landed. Instead, he delivers them via Butterfly Effect.

I did not see any Santa in that movie.

Santa is a Time Lord, he has all the time he needs, more then that Santa has all ready delivered all presents to everybody for every year.

Now he just hangs out in Cancun drinking Mai Tai's and enjoying the beach.

Why does Santa need to ride on a fire truck, anyways? What's wrong with that fat fark riding in his sleigh, pulled by those mincing little homo reindeers?

Cause there's people in the world called insurance agents. If they catch the firemen giving Santa rides like that, they'll drop the firemen's insurance. The firemen will be uninsured, which is a big problem for the city. The city loses its insurance, which is a big problem for the county. Repeat until you get to the federal level and you then you kill the dollar. Santa doesn't want an entire economic collapse to be his fault, so he just doesn't ride on the firetruck. He's capable, but doesn't want to push the issue.

When Santa drops down chimneys, he's acting alone and technically breaking and entering. There's no insurance agent that will cover that kind of activity, but since this just affects Santa's operation, he says, "Fark it." and does it anyway.

Santa's kind of a punk and sometimes shows a devil-may-care attitude that you should never exhibit, kids.
