Yeah, let's stop kids from believing in magical Christmas fun and force them to face "reality"???? What does that mean? How did the Grinch get a Woot password?

@mjc613: Oh let it be.....I love it that he is 12 and still believes that is awesome!!!!! too many kids lose their innocence so early and have to be adult and forget to believe in santa and the goodness in life. so don't be a grinch about it!! encourage him to be a kid as long as he can be.

@mjc613: I think it is great that he still believes. We learn far too ealy that there is less magic in the world than we initially thought. Let the kids hold onto the magic for as long as possible!

We put this up for our son every year. He's always amazed how fast Santa gets through South America to make it back to us in the States. It's also a great motivator to get the kids in bed.. because every one knows Santa wont drop off gifts if the kids are awake. :)

I usually am called to set this up on the computer every Xmas eve, so the nieces and nephews can follow Santa. They get so excited. My big problem is the 12 year old who still believes this junk. His parents have let this go on LONG ENOUGH.

@tennisplayer121: I didn't say adults don't believe in fantasy. I said that many children't are forced to grow up too quickly. Those are two very different things. Children in the US should be allowed to be children instead of being bombarded with all these issues like being being more adult. I have friends who live overseas and their children are 10 and 12 and they fight daily to keep them protected so that they can remain children and keep their innocence and where they live it is even harder than it is here because there is violence almost an almost daily basis there. But here, parents seem to want their children be adult and not just be children we in the US do not foster creativity and innocence. So let it be, good grief it is only a few days a year and really what does it hurt? There is good that can come out of it if the child isn't being a brat about Santa, did that occur to you? Perhaps this child will learn to give more to those around him who are less fortuante.

We just moved to Germany a week ago and this is helping bring some familiarity to my 5 year old. 12 is a little old, don't you all remember what you were doing at 12? Girls were on my mind, not santa.

Ya don't tell that kid the truth about Santa, he'll find out soon enough when the other kids at school are mocking him for believing in fairy tales and destroying his self-esteem, or just beating him up outright and taking his lunch money. But hey, he can take some of those teeth that get knocked out and cash in with the tooth fairy at least.

@mjc613: Good for you. People holding onto magic is one of the root causes of all the problems we have. Think about all the "magical" cures for X problem that circulate around today. It's terrible. I wish people didn't have these fantasies about mystical things in life, and actually believed in reality. I think it's really funny that the two people who responded to you think that adults don't believe in fantasy.
