Why do so few unwrap the gift of Santa Claus?

The Santa Claus game is a loving demonstration that 

  1. The entire society, including your nearest and dearest, will conspire to tell you noble lies.
  2. No matter how absurd, you will believe them. 

So why doesn’t this lesson sink in?

Aside: The deep lie beneath the jolly surface lie is karma — a causal arrow from my personal choice of naughty or nice to whether I’ll taste every good thing in life or only the switch’s sting.  If the horn of plenty flows to me like the hot water in my morning shower, while those others must fetch back their rations in a dirty old bucket, well then, I deserve it and so do they.
