About

A portrait of Santa Claus from a Haddon Sundblom illustration of Santa Claus For children who celebrate Christmas, there is an inevitable moment when we learn that there is in fact no real Santa Claus. However it happens, that realization redefines our timelines into two distinct parts – a time when we trusted completely and a time when we were forced to think more critically, more skeptically. In our education on lying, Santa’s narrative provides numerous lessons. First, we learn how powerful rewards can be as motivation for someone to believe in the implausible. Secondly, the story illustrates the power of a lie when told en masse.
