Santa Claus is a fake, a lesson at an English school told children of nine and 10 years old. A holiday worksheet told students that “many small children believe in Father Christmas.”
It then went on to explain that thousands of letters sent by these children to Santa every year are actually answered by the Post Office.
The youngsters were then asked to write a pretend letter from the Post Office to a child explaining why their requests for presents had been refused.
Not only are kids who may still believe or sort of believe told to stop acting like babies, they’re told to practice dashing the dreams of others.
One commenter wrote:
I think next they should start going to funeral homes and telling the loved ones of the recently deceased that there is no Heaven or afterlife and that their loved one will just rot in the ground and they’ll never see them again. This would be especially good to do to any small children who lose a parent.
