Christmas greetings
One of Munich’s commercial radio stations is running this billboard advertisement campaign called “Münchens größte Kleinanzeige” (“Munich’s biggest classified advertisement”) since June 2007. Their listeners are encouraged to send in their classified ads, and from time to time one of these ads is randomly chosen and then printed on a billboard on the suburban train platform at the central station where it stays for a week or so.

The text of this ad translates into this:

“Dear Thomas,

and never forget.....
Santa Claus does exist and he is everywhere!

Best wishes from Bielefeld

Beate”

The interesting thing about this ad claiming Santa’s existence it that it itself comes from Bielefeld, a city that actually doesn’t exist. In other words, Santa Claus is probably just another concept invented and popularized by THEM in order to control us.
