The truth about Santa….

Portrait of Father Christmas With His Finger on His Lips


I remember when my daughter caught me putting money on her night stand from the Tooth Fairy and how devastated she was for weeks that he/she was not real. I am dreading the day when I need to discuss Santa….it is only a matter of time.

I came across this letter posted on Family Friendly and it is PERFECT! Copy and paste it for when you need it in your household next!

As a parent it is always difficult to know how to respond when your child comes to the age that they start asking about Santa Claus. However every child will ask the inevitable question at some stage “are you santa”? One mum Martha Brokenbrough wrote a letter to her daughter Lucy after she asked the question. We will be using this letter when the time comes in our house. *wipes eye

Dear Lucy,
Thank you for your letter. You asked a very good question: “Are you Santa?”
I know you’ve wanted the answer to this question for a long time, and I’ve had to give it careful thought to know just what to say.

The answer is no. I am not Santa. There is no one Santa.
I am the person who fills your stockings with presents, though. I also choose and wrap the presents under the tree, the same way my mom did for me, and the same way her mom did for her. (And yes, Daddy helps, too.)
