If you’re angry with someone, it can be very frustrating, particularly if there’s nothing you can do about it. Well, there’s one option that’s always there: write a strongly-worded letter! When the parents of a 10 year-old girl named Belle admitted that Santa Claus isn’t real, she went the strongly-worded letter route.
For Belle, the terrible truth about Santa was traumatic. All her life, she’d been under the impression that her Christmas wishes had been fulfilled by St. Nicholas and his busy elves up at the North Pole. Recently, though, other kids had been telling her that Christmas gifts really came from parents. When she confronted hers about this and they ‘fessed up, it was just too much!
Belle’s strongly-worded letter to her parents began, “You have no idea what you just did,” and continued with a rant about the betrayal. “Is the Easter Bunny real? How about the Tooth Fairy? You just ruined a 10 year-old child’s LIFE. Thanks.” The metaphysical underpinnings of her entire worldview had obviously been completely destroyed. She finished off the note with several hand-drawn versions of the middle finger emoji!
When Belle’s parents read their daughter’s strongly worded note, they cracked up but didn’t want her to know they thought it was funny. According to her mom, “We had to move to the bathroom to have a good laugh before we talked to her about the note.” Kids only stay mad so long and only an hour later, Belle was recovering her composure. Before much longer, she was back in a festive mood. “We spoke to her about the magic of Santa and how he lives in her heart. She now knows that it’s her duty to be part of Santa’s team and to help others believe and spread the magic of Christmas.”
