A Christmas Message from Thing One

Thing One (age 8) and I were walking around town, doing our last minute Christmas errands, when I screwed up the courage to ask him the following:
"Is there anyone in your class who doesn't believe in Santa?"

After all, this is what they call in "The Polar Express" a critical year. He's old enough to apply some logic to the situation, and obviously there will be many discussions with his classmates in the playground. But it should also be said that he hasn't expressed ANY doubts this Christmas season and his belief appears to be steadfast.

Thing One replied, "Well, there's a few people that say there's no Santa, and that it's your parents who do it.

"But I told them 'That's crap! There's definitely a Santa!!' "

A Merry Christmas to all.
