Do you have kids? Do they believe in Santa? When will you plan on telling your children the truth about Santa? Ryan and I were talking about the whole Santa situation during church today. See, I don't know if I could just lie to my kids about Santa Claus. I have known some kids that have cried when they found out there was no Santa Claus, like they felt that their parents had betrayed them. I had stopped believing in Santa by the second grade. No one "told me", I just figured that the idea of Santa was super impractical and duh, all the movies and TV kinda gave it away. But I know this isn't the case for some kids.
Okay, I don't look down on parents for letting their children believe in Santa. That would be ridiculous. I just don't know how I'll respond if my child asks if Santa is real or not. Ryan thinks it wouldn't be terrible if we were straight up honest with our future kids about Santa, but will Christmas lose its magic if we decide to be honest?
So I realize that all these thoughts may be kind of silly, but I want some other opinions! How did you find out about Santa? Was it tragic? Do you think you would have had a sad childhood without believing in Santa? Or maybe you don't even celebrate Christmas!
Anyway, I hope you all have a splendid holiday.
Merry Christmas in advance! And have happy and safe travels! I'll be heading up to Albuquerque tomorrow morning :)
