My husband and I had discussed that this past year we were going to tell my son the truth about santa, etc. Then my husband passed in October so I didn't want to take that magical experience away from him even though he's 9 because it was so close to his father passing. Now with Easter coming up- has it been long enough to tell him the truth about the bunny since he is 9 now or should I let him hold that for one more year? Very torn.

I always opt for the truth. There are top many hard truths we have top tell our kids. Pedophiles, liars, bullies. There are a lot of ways to give him that sense of awe. I would stick with the plan I made with my husband.

I hope these thoughts help you make a decision.
