Little girl’s outrage at discovering who Santa really is

A 10-year-old girl was not pleased to discover the truth about Santa, and she let her parents know exactly how

A 10-year-old girl was not pleased to discover the truth about Santa, and she let her parents know exactly how she felt.

When Nicki Adams told her daughter Belle who Santa really is, a series of hilarious notes ensued.

“You have no idea what you just did”, Belle wrote to her parents, before slipping the note under their bedroom door.

“I really tried to believe. Everyone told me it’s your parents. I can’t believe you anymore”.

“Is the Easter Bunny real? How about the Tooth Fairy, huh? You just ruined a 10-year-old child’s LIFE thanks”.

“Nothing will make me feel better, you lied to me about something I love that BROKE my heart”, Belle added before drawing a picture of the middle finger raised, so to speak.

When Nicki posted her daughter’s note to Facebook she explained, “Belle asked point blank about Santa and she’s been asking every day”.

Despite the emotional letter, Belle was only mad for an hour. To soften the blow, her mum told Belle that, “now she’s on Santa’s team to help others believe”.

“When she calmed down she was glad to be on our team and she did the elf on the shelf surprise for me this morning”, added Nicki.

The Facebook post has been shared over 21,000 times with many parents seeing the lighter side to these letters.

Do you remember telling your children or grandchildren about Santa Claus? Isn’t this note adorable?


  1. My 8 year old granddaughter is going through this stage. She still wants to believe, but older brothers have spoilt the myth and now she’s uncertain. Her mother stopped the doubt by saying ” if you don’t believe , then you won’t receive”. As we have both grandchildren this Christmas I just hope we can keep the magic alive for just one more year, as we get to play Santa one more time <3 🙂

  2. I don’t remember a lot, but I do remember the name of the Girl who told me Santa wasn’t true. I was devastated. A long time ago…..

  3. I would think 10yrs is too young to be told the truth I would think that is age when they start wondering but hopefully you can keep them going for a year or two.

  4. I saw this, it’s ridiculous, kids realise this as they mature. When they ask questions give an honest answer.

  5. My adult son is teaching his daughter there is no Santa. Mum is saying there is. Grrrrr! I asked my son if he could temper his stance by telling her it is a story that people like to do. He said he will, but he will not lie to her. It’s confusing for a 5 year old. I always our kids the best presents and smaller things from Santa, so when Santa stopped there was no great loss.

  6. I have a 57 year old Brother in Law that his Mum told him the truth he refused to believe it. He still doesnt believe it.☺ Tony Ryan
