So What You Saying?
As parents, we all know that one day we will get asked the dreaded question by our children, Is Santa real?” How we answer this question, will be of great importance to your child and all the children on the school yard because you know once they know the truth, they will have to share it with their friends.
So, what do you say and how do answer it. I came across this letter and thought it is the perfect way to answer the question, “Is Santa real?”
You asked a really good question, “Is Santa Real” and “Are Mom and Dad really Santa?” We know that you want to know the answer, and we have to give it careful thought to know just what to say.
The answer is no. We are not Santa. There is no one, single Santa.
We are the people who fill your stocking and choose and wrap the presents under the tree – – just as our parents did for us, their parents did for them and you will do for your own children one day.
This could never make any of us Santa though. Santa is lots and lots of people who keep the spirit of Santa alive. He lives in our hearts –not at the North Pole. Santa is the magic and love and spirit of giving to others. What he does is teach children to believe in something they can’t see and touch. Throughout your life, you will need this capacity to believe: in yourself, your family, your friends and in God. You’ll need to believe in things you can’t measure or hold in your hands.
With full hearts, people like Mommy and Daddy take our turns helping Santa do a job that would otherwise be impossible. So no, we are not Santa. Santa is love and magic and hope and happiness. We are on his team, and now you are, too.
