Local high school student Sam Mower was asked by his parents to place presents for his sibling underneath the tree at midnight on Christmas Day. Mower states that he was left in “total disbelief” that the tags were signed “From Santa.”

“At first, I thought my parents were being lazy and not wanting to go downstairs to place their gifts for everyone,” states Mower. “But, as I was putting them down, the small breeze of movement flipped one of the tags over. I just could not believe my eyes. Right in front of me was the familiar neat calligraphy that hadn’t written my name in years. Never in my life had I felt such a betrayal.”

“How was I supposed to know he still believed in Santa?” said Stacey Mower, Mower’s mother. “I just assumed he found out years ago since my husband and I use the same wrapping paper for everything. Well, we shouldn’t have assumed anything because now we’re stuck in a predicament. Sam hasn’t left his room since, and he refuses to speak to us after yelling he’ll never trust us again. We were going to make him leave a dollar under his brother’s pillow because he lost a tooth, but I guess that’s not happening anymore.”
