    One year, the senior elementary students spent lunch hour telling the littles ones their truths about the holidays! What a mess I walked into after lunch! Sad faces, tears and chaos! Well, I took the boys who had devastated my little ones aside and told them that as long as somebody loves them enough or thinks of them enough to buy them something for Christmas, there really is a Santa in that person's heart. I went on to explain that whether you believe in Santa or in the spirit of giving,if try our best our make someone happy over the holidays, then Santa lives in all of us. By the time I had finished with them, they returned to class not so convinced anymore that Santa didn't really exist!! I get so disappointed when the older kids purosely crush this sweet innocence!
