Bad news for Christmas

"Is Santa real?"

Probably the dreaded question for most parents, but we've never told the Santa tale. I grew up knewing it was not real--courtesy of my dad-- but playing along for fun. I saw many other kids lose their shit when they discovered Santa was just made up, and had no desire to repeat that with my own child. But Sam will usually ask every year, I think checking in because his friends believe and he needs to check it out.

I gave my usual answer: "What do you think?" When he was 4 or so, he said "I think Santa's real" and I just said "ok" and went with it. This year he is 7, and his answer was a little different.

"I think he was real but he died."

So Santa's real, but he's dead, folks. Merry Christmas!!
