Dad Convinces His Kids That Ewoks Are Real

Yes, I think that it’s wrong that he lied to his kids. And no, I wouldn’t recommend doing this. But still, this is definitely better than telling your kids that Santa is real. Anthony Herrera says:

Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chuck of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can’t say that she wasn’t disappointed that we didn’t find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn’t see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I’m a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don’t care. She’ll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.

Here’s one of the pictures he came up with.

    Reminds me of what my dad did to us girls while we moved all around the US. He told us about the Indian “Falling Rock” and how all the signs were markers that he had been sighted. He even made it to Hawaii which my dad had to quickly make up an explanation. Looking back on it, its silly and yes lying, but it created memories and I smile every time I see “Falling Rock.”
