Quoting Kennedi's Momma:" "I think it's sad that people have to believe in something to be happy. Just like believing in Jesus ... [snip!] ... talk to someone about it because NOBODY is home. Lol. And the baby is sleeping. So I'll end this now! Thank you for reading!"
It comes from both sides. I see tons of parents talk about how not doing the whole Santa thing is "robbing the child of the magic" or "ruining Christmas" and things like that. That's no nicer. Also, the "brat" comment I think we referring to the situation that was mentioned beforehand, when bratty children misbehave, the parents threaten them with the naughty list, and they get gifts anyways. I don't think she was implying ALL kids who believe in Santa are brats.
This is one of those topics where both sides like to attack the other.
