Yes Teacher There IS A Santa Claus- Teacher Tells Students Santa Isn’t Real

A  New York teacher better prepare to get nothing but coal in her stocking this year after she told her class of second graders that there is no Santa ! 58 year old Leatrice Ann Eng dropped the grinch bomb last week during a geography lesson. Many of the students said they knew where the North Pole was because that’s where Santa lived. That’s when the teacher snapped , telling them that not only was there no Santa but it is their parents that leave gifts for them on Christmas. Parents of course were outraged, and didn’t find much solace in the phone calls made by teacher grinch to apologize. I mean how do you say you’re sorry for ruining the magic of Christmas for a child?  The story has gotten a ton of attention even reaching  the granddaughter of Virginia O’Hanlon, whose famous 1897 letter to the New York Sun asking if Santa was real drew the legendary response, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.”

“My grandmother was a teacher for years, and I don’t think she ever had a problem answering that [Santa question],” Mary Blair, 69, told The Post.

“The most real things in the world are things that you don’t see or touch,” she added, “and they are the things that mean the most — love, kindness and generosity.”
