I believed in Santa when I was younger. Then I found out he wasn’t real, was disappointed for a while, and got over it. A few years ago I started blogging and that’s when I found several who were anti-Santa Claus.
Sure, an old man in a red suit breaks into your house, eats your cookies, and leaves presents…that is kinda creepy….but I couldn’t believe the fuss over Santa.
It seemed so ridiculous how wound up people get because of Santa Claus.
I’ve seen comments like “You’re BETRAYING your children. They’ll NEVER trust you again. I spend my money on these presents so dammit, my kids are going to know who these presents come from”.
Jeez, people…this is just Santa Claus. I can’t see the harm in having your child believe. It’s so magical and fun…the way childhood should be.
So, your kid gets older and finds out there is no Santa Claus. It’s okay, they’ll get over it. As a parent, I find myself telling my daughter little white lies every day.
“Sorry sweetie, The Wonder Pets are taking a nap and can’t come to the t.v.
or else mommy will lose her fucking mind” Or I’ll use “monster spray” in her bedroom so she’ll feel safe.
I think Santa is a positive figure in a child’s life and I just don’t see the trouble with Santa.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
For the PC folks, have a very merry…wait, I don’t want to force you to do anything so you don’t have to be merry…have a very merry or not so merry [enter whatever beliefs and holiday your celebrating]. By entering these beliefs, they will not be judged and if you don’t have any beliefs, I’m not trying to offend you by your lack of beliefs but I…fuck it! Merry Motherfucking Christmas!
