It’s the most wonderful time of the year again! People have begun to don their festive jumpers, almost every mall is decorated with flashing lights, and Christmas trees are slowly but surely starting to pop up in your neighbors’ homes.
Whilst there’s no denying that Christmas isn’t quite the same when you’re an adult, almost everyone enjoys getting into the festive spirit – whether that means stocking up on mulled wine and mince pies, or painstakingly decorating your tree.
But it turns out that there are some seriously skeptical children out there who’ve got absolutely no desire to be merry!
Parents often go to extreme lengths in an attempt to convince their children that Santa exists – and he does, trust me! Some encourage their offspring to leave carrots out for his reindeer, and others even use flour to create the illusion of his footprints in their home.
However, for one reason or another, some children are complete skeptics when it comes to Santa’s existence.
These children are a nightmare for parents’ whose kids are believers. After all, the last thing they want is for the magic of Christmas to get ruined by another child. As adults, some of our fondest childhood memories are of the excitement we felt at Christmas time.
One of my favorite holiday activities was writing a letter to Santa. I usually had some pretty elaborate requests like asking for Pokémon to be real and for a pet dinosaur, but I was never disappointed when I didn’t quite get everything I asked for.
When you’re six, a toy dinosaur and some Pokémon cards are close enough, but that wouldn’t be the case for this skeptical kid…
