Does Santa exist?

Yes, he does. conducted a poll in 1999-DEC, asking Internet surfers: "Do you believe in Santa Claus?" Of the 4,114 votes cast:

bullet 66% voted for the option "Yes! He spreads Christmas spirit around the world."
bullet 34% voted "No! Bah, Humbug! Santa's nothing but a marketing ploy."

So it seems, Virginia, that there is a Santa Claus, after all -- at least in the minds of most Internet surfers near the end of the 20th century. 1
