Spin off of the resent Santa question.
I have heard the argument so many times that kids will be hurt and no longer trust their parents when they find out Santa isn't real. I am yet to meet anyone who was scarred by their parents telling them the Santa myth. So I am asking if anyone here was hurt by it. You personally, not a friend or cousin, etc.
The only way I can see a kid being upset over finding out that Santa isn't real is if their parents made a HUGE deal about it. I mean threatening their kids ALL year that they are being bad and Santa is watching. Or putting them down and telling them they aren't getting anything for Christmas because they are naughty. Also making Christmas all about Santa. Taking out the religious part, the part about peace on Earth, the part about giving and sharing, spending time with loved ones and making Christmas only about Santa bringing you presents. Than I can see a kid getting upset.

No, I wasn't.. I just appreciated my parents more because I knew they bought everything and gave me great memories.
