The most celebrated month of the year is here and we have to focus on lies.
Yes... Santa will bring you presents.
Oh, really? OK. No. We'll tell Santa not to come into the house.
No, he won't break the fire place.
Well he comes to visit so many times in December to make sure you're being good. Sometimes we don't even see him.
No there's no reason to be scared.
He won't come in through the attic. You are safe.
No there aren't 50 Santas, just lots of helpers that look exactly like him.
A tree is supposed to be inside the house to remind us of everlasting life. Jesus... etc...
Ok. We won't wrap any presents.
No, Santa will bring you this and mommy/daddy will get you that.
No freaking wonder we're stressed out around the holidays!!!
I have to say, I'm not alone. Chris has to remember all the lies too. It's really funny. Every morning, we have a 'pow wow'... this is what I told him yesterday. Tell him this today. Should we really be keeping Santa alive, or just tell him already.
He's so into the Santa piece, eventhough it causes all this anxiety.
Let's just run away!
Happy holiday prep folks. Remember your lies.
