Would I be a bad person if I told my 7 year old cousin Santa Claus doesn't exist?

I am 20 and want to tell her the truth, most parents lie to their children getting them excited for Christmas I want my cousin to believe the truth and not be disappointed on Christmas 25.

    Although I believe in Christ, I do not agree with Christmas. It is a man-made holiday based on pagan traditions. Nowhere in the Bible is Jesus’ exact day of birth mentioned and never does God or Jesus say to celebrate it. Additionally Santa Claus, Christmas trees and elves all have no Bible origin. Anyone can simply Google it to see it for themselves.

    However it is not your position to get involved in telling your little seven year old cousin the truth. For me it can be annoying to see how parents perpetuate this lie to their children. But it is the responsibility of the parent to teach their child/children the truth.

    One of the joys of parenthood is bringing happiness into the lives of their children.

    Christmas is one of those times that children anticipate for many reasons- not just for the presents. Why ruin it ?

    You would definitely accomplish 2 things by telling her : make her parents mad at you and make her sad.

    Stay out of this and let your cousin enjoy this special part of her childhood.

    Take care,

    It is not your business at all to interfere. Leave it to the parents.

    You would be a horrible bad person. Fantasy for kids is a good thing; don't screw it up. And why would you? What are you trying to accomplish with what you propose? Certainly you won't make people happy with it.
