Is Santa really a harmless lie though? I mean it sets kids on the treadmill of conspicuous consumption. And when you consider the billions who live in serious poverty around the world - not to mention the millions of starving/hungry/homeless - and the concept of Santa seems somewhat offensive in the face of reality.

True enough, but none of this matters to a little kid - you are looking at like an adult would. The fantasy of Santa Claus is a harmless and charming one, and I appreciate it every year when I see the little kids go wide-eyed with wonder when they see Santa every year.
