No Santa? No way! News anchor sorry for dashing kids' dreams

By Ree Hines

Warning: If there are any Santa-loving wee ones peeking over your shoulder, this would be a good time to send them on their way.

Shortly after airing a news segment aimed at helping parents curb their kids’ high-budget Christmas expectations, WFLD anchor Robin Robinson decided it was the perfect time to cut to the chase and advised parents to just tell kids there’s no such thing as Santa.

Just one problem with that Grinch-worthy reveal — Robinson delivered it in primetime, without one of those handy “tell the kids to leave the room” warnings.

“Stop trying to convince your kids that Santa is Santa,” the Chicago newscaster said bluntly. “That’s what my take is. Forget about it. That’s why they have these high expectations. They know you can’t afford it, so they’re going to ask some man in a red suit. There’s no Santa!”
