Santa Claus

Parents tell their children that Santa Claus isn't real while on camera. Are they some of the cruelest parents? The article says so.

Who tells their kid that Santa isn't real?* They all figure it out by about 5 or 6 anyways.

I'm not reading the article because it's daily fail.

*I'm assuming that for the purposes of it being an interesting thing to watch on camera that we are excluding households where they never told them Santa was real to begin with, which is a valid approach but probably not one worth filming.

Me and my siblings still go along with Mikulás1 and baby Jesus even though the youngest of us is 20 by now. I think we didn't even talk about it with each other, everyone just figured it out on their own.

1I'd say that's Santa Claus in English, but actually he comes on the 6th of December bringing chocolate and sweets. Yup. We get a little pre-Christmas. 8-)

I mean, my mum still does stockings when we're at home. So, you know.

When I spent Christmas away from home Santa came early to deliver stockings that I took with me for the day itself.

We've never openly discussed Santa not being real? I don't want to risk losing my socks and chocolate, you know.

This was my logic as a child. Easter bunny too.

One Christmas morning, I overheard my 3.5-year-old point to a gift tag and whisper to my 6-year-old, "Santa writes just like Daddy." And the 6-year-old whispered back, "Yeah, but don't tell Daddy we've noticed. It's so cute that he thinks he's getting away with it."

And my husband was, indeed, so cute and innocent about how obvious his efforts to be sneaky were was that I never told him he was busted, either.
