Kids will discover one day that the Easter bunny isn't real, one way or another.
I don't have kids so maybe I don't understand... I guess it's a bit sad to learn it this way, but I really don't get all this drama!
I never believed in Santa and the Easter bunny as a kid. I liked these characters very much and it was a lot of fun to pretend, but I always knew it was my parents who brought the gifts. Yet, I'm a perfectly normal person... I think.
I remember distinctively as a kid telling some adults I believed in Santa even if I didn't. I knew it would please them, they would find it very cute and I would get some attention. And it worked. Kids are a lot smarter than we think.
If only people were getting as worked up about poverty, hunger in the world, wars, injustice... oh well.
