I just voted to leave open a half-dozen Santa questions.
At this time I am aware of two kinds of "tradition" questions: Santa questions and "anatomically correct" questions. Yes, they're all off-topic for a variety of reasons, but they're also popular and fun. In other words, they're exceptions.
Rather than create lengthy meta descriptions for either of these two questions — and in an effort to keep people from voting to close many-year-old questions that are obviously in our tradition bracket — I would like to propose the creation of the following NOTICE for Santa-related questions. This notice would be attached to all Santa questions past, present, and future to help people understand that they're a delightful exception to our normal rules.
Christmas Tradition: Questions about Santa Clause are a Christmas tradition at Worldbuilding.SE. Leniency is granted concerning our on-/off-topic rules. Please only vote to close if the question is abusive, rude, a duplicate, or of very low quality. See the santa-claus tag description for more information.
I'm pretty sure I don't have privileges to create and attach these notices. They're the same programmatic object as the hard-science notice. This means I'm going to need the help of someone great and powerful to help me get this done. Thanks!
I've posted two answers, basically "Yes! Let's get this done!" and "No! We don't need that!" Please comment to the question, not the answers, if you wish changes to be made. Thanks!
