Santa also has ties to the coal industry, battery manufacturers, and overeaters anonymous

My 10 year old is on the cusp of not believeing in Santa any longer. Logically he knows the truth. But there is still that part of him that clings to it, a part of him that isn’t fully ready to abandon his childhood yet. Last year he had asked me if there was really a Santa. It happens every so often during the holidays.
I gave my standard non answer, “Well, what do you think?”
“I’m not sure. I really really want to believe that there is.”
“But it doesn’t really make sense. You know?”
“I think I still believe. Yes, I believe.”
“Well, that settles that then, right?”
“Yes. Do you think Santa would bring me a grenade launcher if I asked him?”
“Definitely not. Santa is a pacifist.”
Might as well keep the lies coming. Why stop now.
Over on my other blog I am writing this next week about the holiday traditions that my family enjoys. I’d love if you wrote about some of your traditions and left a link over there, no matter what holiday you celebrate.
