David Robbins: There's no denying it -- Santa is as real as they come

David Robbins

Disturbing news has reached me from a remote village in a mountainous part of rural Ireland. It concerns a case of Santa denial.

The village is, by all accounts, a picturesque and peaceful place. The forces of history have left it with a population equally split between Catholics and Protestants.

The Catholics, drunk on debt and guilt, embrace Christmas in a way that acknowledges its pagan origins.
