It’s that time of year again. Time to find out what Santa is doing and how many days until he takes his flight! So on the local news this morning they were talking about how NORAD made a new addition to help Santa to navigate through the night. TWO…Yes TWO…fighter jets! Why?? Why does Santa need two fighter jets in protect him? Why do we now have to explain to our children why bad things happen to even Santa and he needs protection? Why can’t children just be little children anymore?
I really think that this takes away from the “fantasy” of Santa. I am looking forward to the day that Baby P is able to get excited about tracking Santa but I dread the day that if the fighter jets stay, that I have to explain why Santa needs protection.
How would you explain this to your child?
Disclaimer: I am in no way against the military. I am just frustrated about the fact that now Santa needs protection!!!
