Opinion: "Excitement abounds. Rumor has it that Santa Claus, one of the most beloved people in our part of the world, is coming to town. As a gerontologist who has been in the field for around 40 years, I find it ironic that such a very, very old man causes such an excited stir in a country that worships youth."
