We didn’t do the whole Santa Claus, Easter Bunny thing with our kids for just this reason. I couldn’t look my kids in the eye and lie to them. They’re all adults now, love Christmas and have no problem with our not playing the Santa Claus game. People used to tell me we were taking all the fun out of Christmas, but nothing could have been further from the truth.

You mean....you mean.....There is no Santa Rabbit? Well, there’s another childhood memory shot in the donkey.

I had the opposite experience. And I pity children who were raised by literal-minded parents who don’t know the difference between the world of the imagination and lying.

Saint Nicholas was a real person. His story is inspirational and really should be part of what we teach our children.
