I live to give.
Anyway, this year I thought I'd cover the little white lies you might find handy for
"We don't have a chimney. How will Santa get in." - He has a magic key and just uses the front door. OR. He's just magic; he'll find a way. (Doesn't always work.)
"How come Santa uses the same wrapping paper as you?" - Ah well, we have to leave it out for him. He can't carry all those presents round the world and all the wrapping paper, so parents have to leave it out for him and the elves wrap his presents." (Phew)
"How come some of the things on my Santa list are from you and daddy?' - Erm well Santa doesn't always have time to make everything, so me and daddy buy some of them.
"Ditto grandma". (He didn't exactly say that but it was of the same gist.) - Erm, well there was actually so much on your list that Santa took one look at it and delegated some of the items to me and I then sent a few sugegstions to grandma.
"How will Santa know that I'll be in Colorado and not Chicago this Christmas?" - You can write it on your note, and then we'll leave another note at the house to remind him.
"But the note will be too late, if he starts off in Australia he'll have gone past Colorado" - (This lad is too well traveled by far, but failed to realise that just because we would fly via the Pacific to Australia, doesn't mean Santa comes that way.) Ah no actually, Santa goes the other way from Australia. That's why he gets to grandma's house before our house; so if he flies over the Atlantic, he'll pass Chicago and get the note before reaching Colorado.
(In Colorado) "There aren't any hoof prints on the roof. I thought Santa's reindeer landed on the roof?" - Oooh no, not with all that heavy snow already on there. They'd crash straight through the roof if they did that. They must have landed on the ground (where there are so many foot prints you can't tell who's been there.)
Yes folks - Christmas with young kids is a challenge. Please feel free to add any more gems for general edification.
