The Polar Express, a Jews thoughts

So I took my 2 boys to see the Polar Express. Since their Mom's not Jewish, we celebrate both Christmas and Chanukah in our house. We all enjoyed the movie. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with children.

The funny thing to me about the movie and Christmas in general is it is all based on a big lie. From a child's 1st Christmas they are deliberately lied to by everyone that some big fat man named Santa Claus delivers presents to every boy and girl around the world. I am not looking forward to the day when my boys realize that Santa is a big fat lie. I'm sure they are going to be pissed off. At least at Chanukah you light the menorah and know who the gifts are from, no lies.
