      Bah Humbug!

      Bah Humbug! Teacher tells children there is no Santa during lesson about the North Pole | Mail Online
      It wont go down well with the elves.

      An elementary school teacher has been accused of ruining Christmas for her second-grader class by telling children that Santa Claus does not exist.

      The female geography teacher made the stunning revelation during a lesson about the North Pole at their Rockland County, New York, school.

      When the seven-year-olds told her they knew about the North Pole because of its white-bearded inhabitant, she reportedly responded that Santa did not exist and that Christmas presents were bought by their parents.

      Parents at George W. Miller Elementary School in Nanuet, are furious and have called the teacher sick, branding her a 'real-life Scrooge'.

      'If that happened to my daughter in her second-grade class ... I'd be very upset,' said 48-year-old Sean Flanagan, whose child was in second grade at the school last year.

      'If her brothers told her [there was no Santa], they would be punished. So I can't imagine what should happen to the teacher.'

      A nanny picking up a child at the school said that no one should rob children of their belief in magic.
      59-year-old Margaret Fernandez told Fox: 'It's outrageous that a teacher would strip a child of their innocence and try and demystify something,'

      One grandmother said, 'I think this is awful. If it happened to my granddaughter, I'd tell her [that] her teacher made a mistake, and there is a Santa.'

      The unidentified teacher made the shocking declaration during a geography lesson on Tuesday, when pupils said that they knew where the North Pole was-because Santa lives there.

      The school district Superintendent Mark McNeill told Fox : 'This matter is being addressed internally.'

      You can even get phone apps to keep in touch.

      I don't think Santa lives in the North Pole anyway, more likely Pebble Beach CA. He just keeps his low paid workers there due to the low house and factory taxes,
