Is Santa Real?

Not according to a first grade teacher in Florida.

As reported in CNN: "Teacher tells kids Santa is 'make-believe' "

reading on...
"The teacher said none of the children acted upset or sad during class.

But Jolly and others disagree.

"How do you destroy a 6-year-old like that?" said Pam Sturt, whose son Bradley is in D.J.'s class. "

Personally I did not know this was such a touchy subject. I guess it is right on up there will evolution and prayer in school. Who would have know?

    How funny..

    Still, I don't think anyone was destroyed by the teacher. Too strong a word. .
    The kids will end up a little disappointed, for sure, but it's all for the best in my opinion.

    If there's one thing this world needs, it's more people who question the bull that's fed them from all around and everywhere. Yes, kids should be exposed to the idea skeptical thinking as the way they were in this case.

    When I heard this on the news, I just burst in laughter! I cannot believe this was on the news...at first I thought it was a joke. But no. I saw parents upset - more upset than the kids. Did the parents believe in Santa and this teacher "destroyed" their view? Just so funny.
