Santa Claus

We've made it a point to teach our kids the truth about Santa Claus from the beginning. We want them to always be able to trust that we will never trick them, fool them, or lie to them. We have two neighbor kids that often talk to our kids through the fence along our driveway. Yesterday, Noah told them that Santa Claus isn't real. These poor kids defended their belief to the end, even to the point of saying they knew it was true because their parents told them so. Then they told Noah that his dad didn't know anything. I feel sorry for these kids. One day they will realize it is actually they who have been duped and by their own parents at that.
