First off, I thought your story had a funny topic! All kids love santa and the gifts that he brings, but when they learn that he is not real they are very upset.
This is a well written essay with a fascinating topic! Your analogy is something I have never thought about before. I too miss the excitement that Santa brings. Good job!
I agree with Niko I thought it was gonna be a funny topic but it made me rethink about my past christmas times and feel sad.
I liked your story it must have hurt to see that when you were that young. When your little sometimes your fantasies are all you have.
