Today, my fifteen year old son decided to tell his little five year old sister that Santa isn't real. She now refuses to talk to any of us and thinks "her whole life is a lie". FML

@91- He was not innocently telling the truth. He was probably deliberately being cruel. You wouldn't pardon someone who called another person fat simply because it may be true. Because that is inherently cruel, rendering the virtue 'honesty' null and void.

I found out about santa not being real when I was 9. I heard kids at school talking and thought they were joking. I waited till midnight on Christmas to realise that santa was my dad.

49, my mom is pretty sly, she uses this sloppy handwriting to say that this present is from Santa, but my grandma has a different handwriting... I began noticing...

I found out when I was ten, we were having a party and i went to bed so that Santa would come.I got up to ask my mom something since she was still awake because of the party turns out she went to the store so the door was unlocked and when i walked in her room i saw her friend wrapping the presents the look on her face was priceless! Then the next morning when I got up to see the presents I saw the same size and wrapping paper of the ones i saw they night before. It was horrible for me i can't even imagine what it would feel like for a five year old.

She will find out like normal kids do. Believing in Santa made it a lot more fun as a kid and she deserves a few more years of believing before facing the truth. It's not that big of a deal when you get a little but older anyway when she would find out. I doubt she would be nearly as upset.


Wait...don't tell her what about the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy?

That they work minimum wage?

That they don't get health benefits with their job?

That they can barely support their families?

That they're both going to prison. Apparently the tooth fairy has been taking the gold and silver caps from the teeth she collects, melting them down, and selling the metals on the black market. The Easter Bunny has been arrested for using his tunnels for human trafficking. didn't hear it from me.


What's next? Frosty becoming a cocaine addict? Rudolph using his nose as a cheap strobe light at shady downtown clubs? What are the upstanding holiday characters of our youth coming to?

It's this damned economy, I tell you!

I believe every child deserves some sort of magic in his/her life. It doesn't hurt them, but it encourages them to wonder. Better to have a few years of joy before they are thrust into reality.

I don't want to sound mean but she'll get over it. at any rate if you REALLY want her to start believing again you could always arrange something in the house to where there's enough clues and hints that shows that Santa is real. best it luck op :)
