Lying For Santa

Hey, by the way, y'all, I'm not going to ask or instruct my children to lie to your children because you choose to lie to them. I am also not going to lie to them.

Now, don't get me wrong. No one in my household is going to go out of our way to tell them that Santa Claus isn't real (and that you lied to them), but if it comes up, the younger members of my household are probably not going to be able to gracefully deflect the conversation, thereby casting light on your lie.

Deal with it. Oh, and stop lying to your children.

  1. Amen! When I found out there was no Santa in 3rd grade it didn't devestate me that he wasn't real, but it did devestate me that my parents had lied to me! I've never lied to my kids about Santa. I refuse. I tell them they can believe what they want, but I do not believe in Santa. We talk about the real St. Nicholas instead. Now, I'll contradict myself by saying that we still call their special gifts "Santa" gifts! ;-)
