Setup:  Your lottery holiday scratch game with a million dollar prize requires the winner express a profound belief in the existence of Santa at a press conference to be held during a holiday show intermission before a thousand kindergarteners at your local school.  Your loved ones have already purchased a hundred tickets for this game as your holiday gift, ho ho ho!

    I'll believe in flying spaghetti monster, reptilians and tupac being alive if the price is right.

      Your kids believe in Santa? A scientist says to tell them to stop it.

        I don't se any problem with it, but of course somebody would claim to be offended by you stating you believe in 
        Santa.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            I believe in the invisible hand in the economy of Countries. We receive unlimited benefits from it.

             Children enjoy their make believe games. Why spoil the fun. Santa only comes around once a year.

                            Saw this on the internet

                            ATTENTION TO ALL PARENTS WHO NEED TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT SANTA  🎅 
                            Son: "Dad, I think I'm old enough now. Is there a Santa Claus?." 
                            Dad: "Ok, I agree that your  old enough. But before I tell you, I have a question for you. You see, the “truth” is a dangerous gift. Once you know something, you can't unknow it. Once you know the truth about Santa Claus, you will never again understand and relate to him as you do now. So my question is: Are you sure you want to know?" 
                            Brief pause...
                            Son: "Yes, I want to know"
                            Dad: "Ok, I'll tell you: Yes there is a Santa Claus" 
                            Son: "Really?" 
                            Dad: Yes, really, but he's not an old man with a beard in a red suit. That's just what we tell kids. You see, kids are too young to understand the true nature of Santa Claus, so we explain it to them in a way that they can understand. The truth about Santa Claus is that he's not a person at all; he's an idea. Think of all those presents Santa gave you over the years. I actually bought those myself. I watched you open them. And did it bother me that you didn't thank me? Of course not! In fact it gave me great pleasure. You see, Santa Claus is THE IDEA OF GIVING FOR THE SAKE OF GIVING, without thought of thanks or acknowledgement.
                            When I saw that woman collapse on the subway last week and called for help, I knew that she'd never know that it was me that summoned the ambulance. I was being Santa Claus when I did that." 
                            Son: "Oh."
                            Dad: "So now that you know, you're part of it. You have to be Santa Claus too now. That means you can never tell a young kid the secret, and you have to help us select Santa presents for them, and most important, you have to look for opportunities to help people. Got it?"

                            Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                              I want to believe.

                              If you have enough holiday cheer you can see anything.  Cheers
