Lies, damn lies, and Santa

I used to think that lying to my kids about Santa would needlessly confuse them. They’re learning about the physics of the world, what’s possible and what’s not, and there’s a guy that can eat cookies at every house on the planet in under 24 hours?

Now I think the lesson that comes from realizing that some of what you are told is not true may be worth the initial confusion that stems from believing in flying deer and elves that make Wiis.
