I knew "Santa" was fake in grade one. Am I the only one? Who cares if hes real or fake at one point in time he was real which is why we have presents on the birthday of the son of god, in Christian and other religious faiths. So now that ol' saint nick is dead everyone likes to tell the story of a man who dressed in red, wouldn't black be less promiscuous, and went around giving gifts on the son of god's birthday when the king ruled against it...blah, blah, blah, etc, everyone knows the story. So what's wrong with the truth? Are 7 year olds too young to know some guy who lived hundreds of years ago is dead, and his memory remains in the spirit of Christmas? I don't get the "big deal" of why kids shouldn't know that, although a great man, saint nick is long gone, except in our hearts and memory...and the ocasional story book and gift shop.
