86 He is real, don't worry. I'll give you the coal though. Santa doesn't give coal anymore for some reason. He came into the house an I caught him but he then was taking money from me. He said there had to be some way to buy the coal. I asked where my present was and it turned out to be a picture of me and Mickey at Disney. I thought it was nice but it looked like the one I already had in my kitchen. He went on his way but I never heard my jerk neighbors getting coal. They instead got robbed. Serves them right. I am lucky I didn't get robbed. So the moral of the story is that you should always wash behind your ears.
I'm a teen and sort of agree, but heck no! If my kid did that, they'd be in so much trouble! I don't care how bored the brat is, they don't need to ruin it for kids. Although I also don't agree with telling your kids some fat dude is watching you and gives you random presents.. But whatever.
There is a very short time period (about 5-8 years) in which a child either is afraid of Santa or knows he's not real. Yeah, we teenagers are not retarded. We know that everyone will hear it, and how else do you tell people. Technically, OP's kid saved all those parents from having to explain that.

They would've learned sooner or later.
I agree with 58, but for a different reason. We try to tell our kids not to lie and that lying is wrong, but then we shove this huge lie down their throats. I find it kind of ironic: We lie about a big fat guy that will give them coal if THEY lie or are bad. What kind of message are we sending? Hypocrisy...yay!
83: I think it is good for kids to have something like Santa to beleive in. The world is a harsh place and it is nice when they can have something like Santa to look forward to. I wasn't crushed when i learned he was not real , but i was older and had asked my parents myself. I didn't blame my parents for "lying" to me, as you put it. I am glad I had Santa as a little girl.
Grow adults have imaginary friends they talk to, think the world is 6000 years old, believe stories about a zombie who came back for a meal after being nailed to a piece of wood, and that an ark was built to house all the animals (except for a very large group of massive animals that were somehow forgotten). Is thinking a kid, probably ten, believes in a fat man giving out presents that ridiculous?
50 - just because a book says something with no proof does not make it acceptable to believe. I believe in what makes the very computer I'm typing this on work, not a book of fables with sometimes questionable morals, written by many authors, all hundreds of years after this supposedly happened.
134 - first law of thermodynamics only holds in classical mechanics. In quantum mechanics particles randomly pop into and out of existence, such as virtual photons. This is a result of the uncertainty principle. The universe actually violates no known laws because it's sum is with a Planck unit of zero.
Dude; 1) FYL For all the angry glares you musta gotten and tears shed, but YDI because you don't bring older kids to see Santa. Despite how much you think "D'aw, they'll love it. " Even though we complain to you. Note: When we say we hate it and don't wanna go, we mean it.
That sucks. Crushing young people's dreams since 2011... But I'd have to admit I would be embarrassed if my mother brought me... I'd probably say something like that too...
