1. Con: the Disappointing News

Since Santa Claus is magical, to hear that he is fake can be very depressing. It is even more of a disappointment when, as a kid you catch your parents red-handed in creating the illusion.

When I was five, my brother told me he saw our parents in the middle of the night putting down presents under the tree, including ones that said: โ€œFrom Santaโ€. Thatโ€™s when I realized that Santa wasnโ€™t real and Christmas became less magical. Hilariously, my mom kept putting โ€œFrom Santaโ€ on our gifts as we got older. She was just having fun with it and we would pick on her about it too.
