Last night, on the way to our second christmas program of the evening, Julia said "Santa is fake". She said this in a very matter-of-fact and no-nonsense manner.
I said, "Yes, Santa is fake."
Julia said "Some kids think he is real. "
"Yes, " I replied, "Some kids think he is real."
"But if he is fake, why does he come down the chimney?"
"Well, he doesn't really do that. That part is fake too." I said.
She thought about this for a minute.
I asked her "So, who do you think buys you those presents that you thought were from Santa?"
She thought for another minute and then replied with a confidant nod of her head, "It's the Elves."
Hmmm... Maybe she is not as clear on the whole story as I thought.
