When Arguments Happen At Christmas, The Claus Come Out

(My husband and I have never let our children believe in Santa. We host my in-laws for Christmas this year. They live 2000 miles away, so they stay for a couple weeks. We adults are chatting a couple days before Christmas, when my four-year-old comes up to me.)

Daughter: “[Nine-Year-Old Uncle] is angry with me.”

Me: “Why is he upset with you?”

Daughter: “Because I told him Santa isn’t real.”

(Thankfully his parents were amused, not upset! I had another chat with my daughter about not telling other children about Santa, even though she knows he’s pretend. Meanwhile, it’s not everyday that a niece breaks the news of Santa Claus to her uncle!)
