Why is it considered okay to lie to kids about Santa?
I don’t understand why people do this. Why is it okay to lie to kids about some make believe character for 10 or so years of their life? And how exactly does a parent explain this lie without sounding like an ass?
I remember finding out and being so disappointed. If you never lie to the kid, you wouldn’t have to explain why you’re a big fat liar and you wouldn’t have to watch them cry when Joey at school tells them Santa isn’t real.
So – WHY?!
