Lie

When children find out that Santa isn’t real, it is highly traumatic, for many. The first time parents have deliberately lied, and then must admit. Identified as Santa Trauma. So many heartbreak stories.

Also found it difficult. Age seven, going up the street after school, excited about Santa. Boy beside me said, bitterly, “Come on. Santa isn’t real.” Couldn’t believe it.

How do you know.

My parents told me.

Well, if his parents told him, must ask my own parents. And recall frustrated response from frustrated mother, in the midst of other frustrations at Christmas.

Don’t recall if one daughter ever asked me.

Other daughter will never stop believing. Nice.
