Santa and Science

December 22, 2009 at 7:27 pm Leave a comment

I can not remember what my parents told me about Santa or at what age I started asking probing questions. I can imagine they thought long and hard about their approach before tackling the subject. What if my parents had taken Gregory Mone’s, a contributing editor at Popular Science Magazine, advice and related Santa to “scientific what-ifs.”

Read Mone’s opinion and others in today’s New York Times “Room for Debate: The Truth About Santa” article.

When and how parents decide to “come clean” about Santa is entirely up to them, but encouraging a child to think about Santa AND science is definitely cool.

Keep in mind, even at the age of 28, at my parent’s house if you don’t believe you don’t receive.

Happy Holidays!
