A substitute teacher in the United Kingdom got into a whole lot of Christmas trouble when she - gasp! - told kids that Santa doesn't exist:
The female supply teacher told pupils at Blackshaw Lane Primary in Royton, Oldham, that it was parents, not Santa, who left their gifts on Christmas Day.
Several parents complained to the head teacher, who has since accepted an apology from the teacher concerned.
But head Angela McCormick has since told the agency she does not want the teacher to work there again.
- Thanks Phil!
I am still undecided on whether firing the teacher was right or not, but at the same time, kids these days are treated like little hot house flowers, which is why this made me laugh.
I don't know that I ever believed in Santa. I pretended to for my mother's sake.
