    I think yes. There's little harm in it

    Before my boyfriend came back into my life my plan was to become an early years or primary teacher and I'd always contemplate things like this. I imagine if a kid asked me that question I'd have them decide what their own view is. It encourages them to be imaginative, creative, realistic, decisive, sure of themselves/their views, etc., etc.

    But what would you say if they outright asked you 'Miss does Father Christmas exist?'

    yes child santa is not real; nor is the easter bunny, nor is the monster under your bed, and if you family are religious; neither is God.

    joking about the latter, i'd say 'Well I don't know if God does or does not exist so stfu'

    then id rub David Hilberts bald head on the poster on the wall

    Well a vicar told a school full of children that father Christmas wasn't real. I say it's only fair we return the favour.

    Every time a child talks to me about santa I have to bite my tongue and just smile. And I feel so bad every time I do. One of these days I'm just going to snap and tell a bunch of kids the truth.
