Over the years I have read time and again I have read the plea to be mindful about what Santa Brings children. It wasn’t a topic that I sent much time thinking about honestly. It touched my heart but it never really sank in. As my children are homeschooled and Santa isn’t much of a topic in their lives it didn’t effect me much. In summery, the plea says begs parents to have Santa not bring the very best stuff because school children will compare what they Santa brings them and it isn’t fair if Theo, a child of 8 gets socks, and Chris the only child gets an xbox. I thought the idea was not to ruin Santa for kids. I thought the idea was that we should focus on being “fair” and keeping the myth going.
I was wrong.
It took reading this story, as someone whose home was broken into a few months ago, for this all to hit home. Hard.
