What a beautiful way to tell a child Santa isn’t really ‘real’.
I teared up there at the end.
Thanks for the post, Jonco, and Merry Christmas.
Funny: Every person you meet over the age of 8 or so IS Santa. Guess he IS always watching.
Very well said! I always wondered how to explain Santa to a child in a way that they could really believe! This makes it easy.
In other words we lied to you for years. We will continue to lie to you until you either continue the lie with us or call us out for our bullshit.
Cynical much? G.K. Chesterton said something in the same vein as the original post: “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
So, are you saying, Beat Santa? In what, chess? cards? football?
And all literature teachers are just shaking their heads wondering how they failed….
