I think that the 1974 Rankin-Bass production of The Year Without a Santa Claus said it best.

“I believe in Santa Claus, like I believe in love.”

This is true.  I really do.

My son thinks that I’m a freak.  I heard him whisper to his friend (when he did not think I could hear, of course), “My mom really believes in Santa Claus.  Don’t tell her,” as he rolled his eyes in the know everything manner that children do when they realize their parents are totally clueless.

Well, child, I have something to tell you.  Santa is the spirit of loving and giving that lives inside of us.  Besides, if you stop believing in Santa Claus, he stops bringing presents.  Get with the program.
