A student, (let’s call her Sarah) told me today, “You know how people at the mall dress up as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny? One time I was sitting on the Easter Bunny’s lap and I was crying because I was so scared…”
This prompted me to say in a very shocked tone, “What a minute. Are you saying that Santa and the Easter Bunny aren’t real?!?”
“No,” Sarah replied in a reassuring voice, “They’re REAL, it’s just that people dress up like them at the mall. Don’t worry, they’re real.”
It was the cutest thing ever!
