What? He's not REALLLLL?

At least that is what some british school kids heard recently about Santa from older students, and their parents were so mad that the magic of Christmas was stolen from these kids and that they couldn't get awa. This bit was funny: "The youngsters were then asked to write a pretend letter from the Post Office to a child explaining why their requests for presents had been refused."

There are way too many statements in this article I could mention (seriously...at least 10 or more). I'll just let you read it. I'll add one more: teachers are asked to lie, among other things: "From now on when a child asks if Father Christmas exists the teacher should say, 'I'm not sure. Go home and ask your parents.'"

It bothers me that the teachers are asked to lie about it. It's not like teachers don't go around giving their opinions on other things, such as whether evolution is true or if certain lifestyle choices are ok or not...

I found this to be incredibly hilarious...and not at all surprising. Probably more hilarious...thanks for posting it! I should post an article from The Guardian from last Christmas about The Lion the Witch & the Wardrobe. Remind me. :)

Ok, I'm still laughing about this - I told my family about it over brunch on Christmas. My brother's girlfriend has three kids, so we were talking about Santa :)
Love you!
