Parents are upset after their kids attempt to find out the truth about Santa Claus from a quick Google search, and they're calling on Google to censor the search results to the all-important question, "Is Santa Real?"
While I understand the frustration of having other kids ruin your kids' Christmas with the reinforcement of the World Wide Web, let me just suggest that if your child is old enough to access Google, they're old enough to know the truth.
Of course some kids just ask their parents to Google things for them, to which I say, parents have every right to "censor" the Google results and just show your kids what you want them to see.
Truth be told, there are many much more concerning things that your kid could be Googling or being shown by their friends at school who have unlimited access to all the filth that every sick person on the internet puts out there. Reading a snippet about the history of Santa Claus is not one of those things.
If you give your kids access to the internet, they're most definitely being exposed to things you'd rather not have them see. I'd much rather them lose the 'magic' of Christmas than their innocence, but I guess parents these days don't all have their priorities in order.
And while Google hasn't quite joined the Santa conspiracy, Apple is doing its part, with Siri replying "Well, those cookies don't eat themselves" in reply to the million-dollar question. Not to mention, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has the Christmas Eve tradition of reporting updates on their "Santa Tracker" each year, for those of you who want to make the magic of Christmas look a little more official.
However you choose to handle the issue of Santa Claus in your home this Christmas, please, for the love of all that's good in the world, don't give them access to Google.
