Your so-called "best friend" tells you Santa isn't real at recess one November day and it feels like a shot to the gut.
You need proof!
"It can't be true, say it isn't so!" As long as you deny it you'll keep getting presents, right?
4. The Downward Spiral
Your whole world seems to come crashing down.
You find it hard to comprehend that it was your parents all along, and not a bearded man who squeezes through your chimney and drives a magic sleigh.
You want to let everyone know that Christmas now sucks!
Your monologue to everyone of the horror you have just become aware of.
Maybe you just have to figure out a way to live in this Santa-less world.
You realize life is full of ups and downs. It's about finding the silver lining in every cloud.
