All the greater generations in Americas past were lied to, and they turned out ok.
But is it really lying if Santa does not exist in the physical world?
Santa may not exist physically but his spirit is alive in all of us, it's up to us whether we choose to kill him or not, and from the looks of it,
people would much rather wish him dead.
If you choose not to tell your kids about Santa because you feel you are lying to them, that is your call.
If you want to deprive them of the joy of waking up on early on Christams Day running up to the tree and tearing open their gifts that is your call,
...but you will be missing out, big time.
It's about giving and seeing their eyes light up like never before.
It's also about bonding as a family as well, creating and living those special moments that kids will remember for the rest of their lives. Christmas
should be for the children, yet it seems that it's the selfish people that wish to kill Santa.
Rather than forcing a child to accept things from an adults perspective, it's about bringing happiness down to the level a child can naturally grasp
and easily understand. It's about love.
I'm sure we can all agree that is one very important factor that's missing in the modern family.
There will be those that will say I don't want to expose my kid to that lie.
NEWSFLASH 1! Kids will be lied to as they grow into adulthood.
NEWSFLASH 2! Many times, you won't be available at that moment to pick up the pieces.
Kids are a lot more resilient and forgiving than the PC parents wish to give them credit for.
When the time comes and the truth about Santa is revealed, it's all the positive reinforcement they received in the form of family bonding and love
that will soften the blow, and in the process a valuable lesson will be learned.
Maybe that's part of the reason we're in the condition we're currently in, there is no accountability any more.
People have gotten too damn lazy over the years.
If parents feel their kid(s) won't be able to handle the truth about Santa, then they shouldn't tell them.
But these are the folks that failed as a parent and should be labeled "L" for lazy for choosing not to take them down that Santa route.
Yes, they are lazy and extremely selfish too.
Too busy for their kids and choose not to be bothered by it all.
They always try to take the easy way out by taking things too literally, and in the process choose not to go the extra mile.
And I'm sure, many of these lazy parents are too busy playing video games about fictional characters that have no meaning nor spirit?
We shouldn't be blaming Santa if Christmas has gotten so commercialized over the years, we should be blaming ourselves.
Shame, shame, shame for missing the real reason and instead letting corporate greed dictate "their" meaning of what Christmas should be.
Santa may be a fictional character but his spirit is alive in all of us.
It's up to you whether you choose to kill him or not.
