Keep Believing in Santa

There’s been a wicked rumour going around for years that’s trying to kill the magic of Christmas.

Spread by nefarious naysayers it claims that Santa Claus isn’t real.

Lies.

Once upon a time parents were able to shield their children from this great untruth.

However, with the rise of the internet, the Claus deniers have seen fuel added to their foul festive fib.

Indeed, young whippersnappers who just want to Google where to send their letter to the bearded big man may instead stumble upon online accusations that he doesn’t even exist.

However, thanks to our new idea, which we developed for VPN client Hide My Ass! parents can now protect their kids from the world wide web of Christmas lies. Said idea involved the creation of a free browser plug-in that takes any search results, webpages or social media posts filled with fibs about Father Christmas not being real and conceals them with a picture of jolly Santa in his workshop.

With Santa’s, and indeed Hide My Ass!’s global reach, it seemed only right this story was given the worldwide exposure it deserved. To that end, the idea was sent to media across the planet – including UK, France, Germany, USA, Canada, Australia and Brazil.

The results were a wonderful Christmas gift: hundreds of items of coverage including Mashable, Mail Online, Mirror online, Metro, New York Daily News, Le Figaro, Daily Star, Daily Mirror, Gizmodo, AOL, Yahoo, San Franciso Chronicle and Le Parisien to name a few.
