No but do they spend any time worrying that children will be scarred for life because for a few brief years they lived in a world where bears and rabbits talked and where witches and goblins and fairies held sway? Likely some do but most don't. Same with Santa. It's a magical story that makes a lot of kids, and their parents, happy. If it's not part of your family life that's fine but it's no worse, IMO than any other of the many magical, and untrue, stories we share with our children when they are small.
