What Santa Does in His Down Time.

Yesterday, after dying Easter eggs and discussing egg hunt details, Jill revealed that she didn't really believe in the Easter bunny anymore. I figured this much, as she long ago told me the tooth fairy must be the mom and dads. Fairies don't exist, afterall. I figured she was really just playing along with the whole Easter bunny thing, so I wasn't shocked when she told me her theory that the Easter bunny was not real.

"You know, I don't think there really is an Easter bunny," she said matter-of-factly.

I answered her with a question, testing exactly how much she knew. "Well then, if there is no Easter bunny, who do you think delivers the Easter baskets?"

She thought for a minute. "It's just someone dressed up like a bunny."

At that point, I knew the gig was up. She was on to us. "Okay, Jill, so who do you think it is dressed up like a bunny?"

Her eyes lit up. "SANTA CLAUS!"

Oh. Yes. Obviously. I mean, the Christmas rush has long since passed, so he has some down time.

I think we may have bunnyatheism beginning in my house thanks to the lame man in a bunny suit at the hunt today. We never did the whole meet the bunny thing. So, she was onto it from the get go today. Now, she keeps asking why I don't just do the eggs instead of the creep in the suit.
