I was 8 and my dad came in to my room, asked what was wrong, and said are you upset b/c there is no Santa, and I was devastated. I was upset b/c he my mom were talking of separating. Then he tells me there is no Santa, total sadness, and loss of the magic of Christmas. I hope to get one last Christmas out of my 8 year old daughter. She has asked me a couple questions, but she does not seem to want to find out Santa is her Mommy and Daddy. I love Christmas, and think Santa is real in spirit! I hope to pass that on to my kids. I know some people say it is lying, but I never viewed it that way.
