Man like I was the last one of my friends to find out that and let me tell you I’ve never been so mean to a kid that I’ve wanted to tell them Santa ain’t real. Like shjt if it reaffirms that “if you do good things you’ll get rewarded” then I’m all for it, but the moment your kid is a djckhole and it gets more presents than my kid who’s a saint, I’ll be darned if I’m not contemplating being like “yo santa ain’t real your parents are just buying your happiness with toys, have fun taking solace in materialistic items into adulthood.”
I wholeheartedly blame santa for my thinking of “oh a 70 inch tv will make me happy.” Which to you guys, yes a 70” tv makes me happy, but for how long?
@YourMomRidesMeGood, I don’t have kids, but I remember seeing a post online somewhere where the parents let the kids believe Santa is real, but that he’s the one who brings the boring things like clothes and books, and the parents are the ones who buy the fun stuff like hard drugs and prostitutes.
@YourMomRidesMeGood, at the age of 3 or 4 i figured santa wasn’t real since it was implausible he could deliver presents so efficiently. I stayed up that night Nd say my parent wake up and go to the living room and eat the cookies. I hid under the couch (high legs) and when they went back to the room i went back to mine. I never told my parents about this, but it always surprises me how i thought this way as a kid while many 10yo still believe in santa.
I always thought the concept of Santa was creepy as a kid. Why it’s looked on as a good thing to have some fat old man that lives alone with a bunch of child sized creatures while spying on children around the world (as they sleep, no less) is beyond me.
Santa is an allegory for god. They’re both omnipotent beings that watch and judge everyone with zero accountability, and both are equally fictional characters designed to compel desired behaviour.
Nah I would never crush a kids dreams like that. Instead, I’d dress up as Santa and let him catch me fvcking his mom. I’m going for more damage.
You know what!? There is no Easter bunny!! Over there, that's just a guy in a suit.
