How do you explain all the Santa’s you randomly see when you’re out at the mall or anywhere during the holiday season? Do you tell them that’s the real Santa? I didn’t really have to think about it before but now that DD is older she’s starting to ask. The other day she asked how did Santa have time to be at the party we were at? Isn’t he suppose to be at the North Pole? I was caught off guard and just said maybe he’s taking a break from making toys! know some people tell their kids the Santa’s you see before Christmas are actually Santa’s helpers and they report back to the real Santa at the North Pole. Just wondering what do you all tell your kids??
