Personally, I don't like relying on the idea that kids should stop throwing tantrums just so they can get their presents. It'll objectify their actions, and make it all about the "What's in it for me?" attitude. Instead, perhaps try to explain why a good behavior is actually important, and why we try to not burden those that care for us. Maybe it won't work for everyone, it worked for me.

Exactly. It was inevitable. At least you didn't scar your child with the idea of Krampus. Apparently, he's Santa's demonic helper. He takes bad girls and boys, puts them in a sack, and beats them. So, all in all, I'd say taking away Santa is no biggie. At the end of they day the bratty kid has parents who love her and have the means to provide her with gifts.

Yeah, in the Czech Republic Saint Nicholas (Mikuláš), an Angel and a Devil (sometimes several) walk around to people's houses and if they hear that the kids have been bad the Angel gives them coal and the Devil actually stuffs the kids in the bag and starts dragging them away until they plead for mercy and promise to be good (or at least better) next year.

Yes, really. You'd be amazed. A lot of children stop believing at 7-8 but pretend they do to get more presents. It's actually super common. Dunno if that's the case of OP's daughter though so it kind of needs a follow-up.

"Santa" aka my mother got my 8 year old sister a tablet for Christmas. A few weeks ago, when I asked my mom what I should get for my sister for Christmas, she told me to get a blue tablet case for her. I did and when I gave it to her this morning she wondered how I "knew" Santy was getting her a tablet in order for me to get her a case...If I knew my mother was getting her the tablet from HER to my sister and not as "Santa's" present to her, then she probably wouldn't be questioning us so much right now...

Most likely the dog won't understand why you kicked it two days after. But lets says the child threw a fit on the 23rd(a really bad fit) and then 2 days later they didn't get present (the 25th), the child would understand why they didn't get a present.

#7, I will assume you don't have kids. Write down your comment, store it away and re-read it when you do have kids. Then ask yourself if your puritanical thoughts still hold.

Tell her that you work for santa to help find the presents for children around the area That might work.
