Not a liberal nor a Jehovahs Witness. My parents never told me that there was a Santa, Tooth Fairy, or the Easter Bunny, my Dad was not a fan of Halloween either.

Did not start any of the myth telling with my kids, but we were clear that they should keep our belief to themselves.

It never spoiled the season for them, didn't damage their imagination and I know that they didn't think that Christmas was any less magical. We had lots of fun with every holiday.

One of the parts I don't understand about the Santa stuff is why would you tell your child that someone else gave them the gifts that you worked hard to provide. If you want something, come ask me for it, it's part of our relationship.

Also I'm not a fan of the negative (non-parenting) threat. Santa is watching and if you don't _____, you are going to get a lump of coal.

Feel free to flame away.

My parents were evil liars.

Every Christmas I left milk and cookies for Santa by the fireplace. I had to go to bed right after Christmas Eve midnight church service. In the morning the cookies were eaten and milk drank, and there were some fun toys under our tree all wrapped up in pretty paper, like matchbox cars and cowboy guns, and maybe a board game like Mousetrap. On Easter Sunday after church service, me and the other kids went searching for candy and easter eggs that the Easter Bunny hid all over the church yard, and filled my little wicker basket with goodies. At Halloween we would dress up as ghosts or Dracula and go door to door trick or treating. We were told if we didn't get a treat then maybe the neighbor would get a bad trick (but never did).

Then when I reached about 6, my Dad started making me kill things. I would go fishing in streams with him with a big net and rubber boots up to my waist, & catch smelt under a full moon, and watch him fly fish and catch brook trout early in the morning. Then we would have to go home and cut their guts out, fry them in hot oil and eat them.
When I was around 10 my Dad taught me to shoot a .22 rifle, and he would take me squirrel, rabbit and quail hunting with him. We would come home with our jacket pockets and bags full of dead, furry little animals and have to chop their heads off and cut their guts out and then my evil mom would cook them.

Somewhere from 6-10 I learned that those bastards were lying to me about Santa and the Easter Bunny. I only recall thinking how nice it was that my dad was actually both of them. What a sick bastard I was turning out to be thinking that was nice!

My dreaded life only got worse. As I grew older, my dad gave me his fathers shotgun, and we began deer hunting, goose hunting and duck hunting together. When I shot my first buck it seemed like it weighted 300 lbs. Of course it ran into a huge ravine and died and my Dad made me gut it right there. I felt like an axe murderer, and we had to drag that damn thing up the ravine and out of the woods. It almost killed me. Then when we got home we hung it from a tree in the front of our house, and all the neighbors stopped to see what a fine Buck I shot. Then we had to eat the damn thing all winter.

Yep my Mom and Dad lied to me and made me do really bad things. I wish they were still here.
