- aSo how's everything going for Christmas?
- bI've got all the presents I need, and my family is working together to get all the food ready. That's easy, but I have another problem to deal with.
- aWhat's that? Don't tell me you've still got Christmas cards to write, it usually takes my wife a month to write all of ours.
- bNo, I did that a long time ago. It's about telling my son the truth about Santa Claus.
- aHe still doesn't know that Santa isn't real? How old is he, eight?
- bYes. He's never said anything so I never told him. But now that he's getting older…
- aYou think it's better that he should be told?
- bYes, he's too old to believe in that type of things. And I'd rather tell him before the kids at school do.
- aThat happened to my oldest girl. She became really upset when her classmates told her Santa wasn't real.
- bI can understand. I was lucky with my oldest, she figured it out by herself and didn't tell my son.
- aWell, when you tell him, be gentle. It's hard for kids to find out something like that.
