    You should meet the headteacher of my stepdaughter's primary school......if he had his way, as soon as the children arrive at his school they'd be told that Santa isn't real.....thankfully his staff put enough pressure on him so he still has to allow christmas parties with Santa.

    Santa isn't real. The easter bunny isn't real. You will be a slave to the system for the rest of your life.

    Now go to class.

    Oh, and nobody cares if you were popular at school.


    What... Why are you crying, Sally?

    My children were always taught that the Santas you see at Christmas are not the real one anyway because at a very early age they noticed that there were lots of them!

    It's all outsourcing and franchises these days.

    Back in my day, it was the real Santa.

    Take the Home-Alone approach. They're not the real Santa, but they do work for him :P

    The real santa wears a green coat. Thank you CocaCola for Santa wearing RED!

    My children realised that the school Santa was the granddad of one of their friends and told me .

    My response was very impressed and along the lines of:

    "Really? He must be ever so special! Santa is so busy at this time of year and sometimes he has to ask someone to stand in for him. He won't ask anyone!"

    Both my little ones were perfectly happy with my response and just thought that their friend's granddad had a really important friend. Problem solved.

    I'm not actually sure when they completely stopped believing; my son in particular didn't take any risks and seemed to believe for a lot longer than his older sister (who did manage to keep her trap shut on pain of death!)

    There are many depictions of of him wearing red and white before Coca Cola adopted him.
    Plus I am more inclined to believe Snopes than Yahoo Answers?!?!

    You are probably right, but the conspiracy theorist in me likes that answer

    Blah, ninja'd.

    Because to rebute I had to chage my proxy [snopes is blocked...], export the page to word [can't select text], find and copy the text... Then attribute the correct source.


    Oh yeah, then re-login here because IE sucks at remembering who I am.

    That would be a monitor. It was slightly twisted counter clockwise, not enough for me to be unable to see it, just enough to bug me.
