How to answer the question Is Santa Real?

santa is real

“Is Santa real?  Or is it just you Mum?”   Oh no.  The question!

I had thought about this on and off over the years.  How would I answer this?   Would I tell him the truth?   Would I continue with the magical myth?   I had never come to a definite conclusion.   What I had thought was that he would be older than 6!

My mouth suddenly felt very dry, like I had just eaten a handful of sawdust.   I blinked at him and licked my lips, hoping the moisture would return and something marvellous would flow out of my mouth.   Some wonderful awe-inspiring speech…..   No ….nothing.

Now my 3 and 5 year olds were looking at me, with the same innocent wondering faces.   “Crap!” I thought.   How did I NOT have an answer to this?

Last year this same inquisitive son asked me what sex was.    “What do you think it is?” I replied.  “You tell me,” he said.   “No you tell me,” I said.  “No I asked you first!”   Was his reply.   Again the tough questions.    Argggghhhhh!!!   And I fumbled some form of an answer I still regret to this day.  I had always thought I would be honest, straightforward and it would flow.  Well, it didn’t.  And I swore after that disaster I would have an answer to all those tricky life questions.    Truthfully though, I thought I had more time before this one would be asked.  Instead, now I was staring at three children, knowing full well that “honesty is the best policy”, yet there is a lifetime for this.  There is only a short window of time when life truly is all magic and pixie dust.

Santa, love, christmas spirit

How I explained Santa to my kids…

So I stopped and breathed in deeply.   Then I asked, “What do you believe in?”    “I don’t know.  But I think he might be real….there was a pause and then he asked…   “But is he Mum?”

I struggled to remember that wonderful letter floating around Pinterest and Facebook by some wise parent who had thought this through.   What was it that they said?   I know they admitted it was them but it didn’t take out the magic.   Darn it why isn’t there a freeze button on children so I can go research my answer?!   And then I thought about my upbringing.  How I was bringing up my children.  We are being raised with faith.  And so that is where we went.

“Is God real?  Is air real?  Is love real?  Is the whole Universe real?”  I responded.   “Yes.” They all chimed in together.  “But how do you know?”   I replied.   “You can’t see them.  You can’t touch or even smell them. You just have to believe they are there because all of those things are important to us.   But does everyone believe in them?”   “No.,” said my eldest.  “Are they wrong for not believing in them?”  I said.  “No that’s just what they believe.” He smiled back.   “Exactly my love.   You believe in what makes you happy.  What fills your heart with joy and what gets you through when you feel sad.   Always look for those things.  And if one day you find they are not real.  Or you choose to no longer believe, remember it never hurt you to believe.  It only made your life more fun or magical.”

His hand was in mine and we gave each other a little “I love you” squeeze.   And on we went with our Christmas shopping.   Had I answered his question?   I still don’t know.   But what I do know is that he is choosing to believe.   He is choosing the joy and the mystery of childhood.    And when the time comes that this question is asked again?   Well, I will have printed out that smarter, wiser person’s response!!!!

Good luck with your response when this question is posed to you.  If you want that wonderful response that I will be printing off and carrying with me at all times, here it is:

The Santa Letter you should print out NOW

Dear Ryan,

You asked a really good question, “Are Mom and Dad really Santa really Santa?”. We know that you want to know the answer, and we had 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 kids someday.

This could never make any of us Santa though. Santa is lots and lots of people who keep the spirit of Christmas 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 or touch. Throughout your life, you will need this capacity to believe: in yourself, in your family, in your friends, and in God. You’ll need to be able to believe in things you can’t measure or hold in your hands.

Now you know the secret of how he gets down all of those chimneys on Christmas Eve: He has help from all of the people whose hearts he has filled with joy.

Will 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.

We love you and always will.


Mom and Dad (yes its an American letter)

    WOW – well said, well said, well said!!! My 11 year old asked the question last year when she was 10 and I didn’t know how to answer her but somehow kept her believing until this year – just last month actually. I LOVE the MAGIC and TIME I spend on making my babies (9 and 11) Christmas super special and magical. But my 11 year old asked in a way that I could not lie anymore. So I smiled and we giggled and she had more questions like “then how did the trampoline get in our backyard?” we giggled more and I made sure she knew that “Santa” would always visit our house and now after reading your explanation I truly get why “Santa” will continue to visit forever – it’s his Magic inside everyone of us who believes in love, happiness and things we can’t measure or hold in our hands. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Ear says:

  6. Ashton says:

  7. Ashton says:

  8. marcy says:

    idk if he is real or not

  9. Sierra says:

    IDK if I Believe in the physical Santa but i Believe in the Spirit of Santa and thats enough for me

  10. an elf says:

    santa is most definitely real
    but its your choice to believe or not

    • guest says:

      what is your name are you really an elf but i am with you i belive in santa and if other people dont then that is their fault

  11. Ryan says:

    Well, it’s a feat that CAN’T be done, however, a spirit would be able to fly atleast 2,300 mph, to indeed be able to give off all the presents/gifts. +A physical being could not have 7billion+ presents on a sleigh pulled by some reindeer, it would only have to be as a well, dimensinoul transport to be able to pull this off. Also, he would have to drop presents like a bomb because, going down and up chimneys, atleast thousands at a time in 2.3 seconds nearly impossible, thus he would have to drop it like a bomb, but what if they don’t have a chimney? Well, nearly hard to answer that question. Thus I have proved my point as he is not real, he HAS to be a spirit, not a physical being of matter.

    • autumn says:

      Oh you know what you are you are a spoiler. You know what if it turns out that you are completely wrong what are you going to say then Mr. I Know Everything.Just shut up it just being a flat out crapy spoiler.

    • Courtney says:

      Hi Everyone! 🙂 Sadly santa is NOT real 🙁 my parents just told me 30 mins. ago and i was sad. its ok if u still belive in santa, u can find out the truth when ur parents think its time 4 u to know the truth.;)
      Have a nice day! 🙂

      • SuperBubbles03 says:

        I know for sure that Santa isn’t real:
        This is how I know:
        I was looking on my mother’s emails (my sister had gotten a singing, dancing Olaf for Christmas)
        One of the emails was from Amazon, saying: Your order of: Singing Dancing Olaf has been confirmed. Thank you for shopping with Amazon. I was so shocked, I couldn’t believe it. Then my sister got a calendar saying To Mia From Santa. I recognize the handwriting as my Nana’s. Basically Santa is a big lie, buts it not all that bad. Santa is real, in a way, I guess. Imagine if there was no Santa, and all you did for Christmas was sit around, eating turkey, or whatever. Personally, Christmas for me created huge memories. I can still remember grabbing presents for other people, and running around trying to get the presents to their owners. The masses and masses of shiny wrapping paper. Santa was spun up so that Christmas became a time of sharing, laughter and fun. “Santa” should be thanked for making such joyful and magical memories. Even though I don’t believe in Santa, I think that the idea of Santa is a tiny sphere of hope for young children, in a world of such ugly and gore.

    • Chloe says:

      Of course he is ?

  22. Kitty says:

    I guess he was not real (i could always tell… But how does that explain me seeing him XD that prob was just my mum)

  23. Diana says:

    santa is not real

  24. T says:

    I personally have no idea if he’s real or not, but maybe science would be able to answer the question one day

  27. jessica says:

    I think santa is real

  28. Jessiee says:

    Ok to tell you the truth Santa is not real its family members or even carers don’t worry it’s not the end of your child hood I have know since age 5

  29. Tori says:

    SANTA is NOT REAL for all of use who wants to know don’t worry its not the end of the world your mum or dad or who ever looks after you will tell you when your older…. OK so SANTA IS NOT REAL

    • Chloe says:

      Tell me the reason that it is not possible for Santa to be real. Is there no way in the universe that there is a man, who loves children, Christmas, love, family, and joy? If you are a parent and you give you’re children the presents under the tree and leading them not to believe in Santa, then why would he bring them presents if they are already getting some? Is it not possible for a man to be magic? I asked him the exact question (We’re you born magic?) and he said Merlin and some more wizards were giving children in terrible living conditions better homes and places to live. They gave him magic from their magic. Is it not possible for a man with magic to stop time, give presents to each home, stuff stockings, and bring wonderful children joy? If thre is no way for any of these to be possible, please tell me.

      • Truth says:

        No, it’s not possible because magic isn’t real.

        • Chloe says:

          Magic is real!!! How is it possible for God if magic isn’t real? Do you not believe in Christ? He was always there or maybe he magically appeared we don’t know. How is forever real? There has to be a stop somewhere, but there isn’t! Time keeps going because it’s magic!there is magic in the air all over! I’m twelve TODAY and I still believe because the day I stop believing a little bit of my happiness will disappear as well

          • Jay says:

            You are right

          • Chloe says:

            Thank you!

            That is true

          • Kaylin H. says:

            Nasa has even said santa is real, NORAD tracks him, and scientifically proven: Santa is a master of science

          • venna says:

            Last year I actually tracked himon NOARD and a few years ago I heard loud heavy boot foot steps and it’s was exactly 12:08

          • Conor says:

            So, you believe in magical man who somehow lives in the North Pole without freezing, has lots of little men working for him, is very obese but can still go down a chimney, has flying reindeer (One of them with a big red nose) and travels around the world in one night? Also, not everyone believes in God you know.

          • Autumn says:

            I am well aware that not everyone believes in God, but our bodies are designed, are you saying that humans appeared by magic? God forbid there ever be any magic in the world because OH it is so impossible for there to be magic right? And if a man has magic he sure can squeeze down a chimney, fly with reindeer, has elves working for him, and freezes time to be able to fly around the world. Yes I do believe and when I stop believing a bit of my happiness is lost.

          • Caleb says:

            im 9 and iwant to know if he’s real. im on the edge, i dont know if i should believe or not. so many different answers

          • Sidney says:

            Santa is real if you don’t believe it is just that you have been hit with a non-childish character now that you are older you only thing in the woman’s period or having a boyfriend and having sex but children have a more special imagination than adults so for kids Santa is real

          • Molly says:

            “Imagination”, you have just contradicted yourself with one word. Bravo!

          • Molly says:

            Omg thanks SOOO much Chloe I watched a YouTube video and it was just awful it was saying how Santa wasn’t real or anything that it was all your parents that were making you believe in Santa but thanks to your inspiring comment, it leads to think he his real and unknown he is!!! Thanks

          • Britanie says:

            You are right

          • juja says:

            Because magic has nothing to do with God God has his own ability to create the world and send his son to die on the cross for are sins and christ didnt just appear God made mary preganant with the lord jesus. It also says in the bible that magic is from the devil.

          • Liem says:

            If God is real he created magic which induces meaning he’s magic himself for creating magic

      • Noel says:

        You sound like a 5 year old. Who did you ask? Some guy dressed in a Santa costume trying to earn some money? Sorry to rain on your parade, but Santa is a childish myth.

        • Noel says:

          It is also scientifically impossible for “Santa” to deliver gifts to every kid in the world in one measly night. If you’re smart enough to calculate the rate of speed he’s going, he would burn to a crisp at the altitude he’s flying at. Plus, reindeer can’t magically fly.

        • Liem says:

          Yes, it’s a myth. But the thing is in my eye, Santa is an urban legend. I don’t believe or disbelieve but I think it’s an urban legends gone around Earth for centuries. ( Don’t ask why I think it’s an urban legend . He is mythical being)

        • Chloe says:

          Actually I recently turned 12 and i know that Santa is 100% real

          • I_am_the_pigeon says:

            I’m so sorry your parents never told you the truth… I mean seriously.. Use logic. There is no real proof he exists, except for little things your parents do and leave to make the holidays special for you. He is a fictional character, made up about 300 years ago. If Santa was real there would be scientific proof on his 300- year existence- and the oldest person ever was about 114. Scientists would have information about that by 300 years, dontcha’ think? Sorry, gotta face facts. He’s fake. Kiddies who say “he’s real! My parents never lie!” Do babies come from a stork? No. They come from sex. They lie for your well being and happiness. ✌?

            Don’t say things like dat!

          • truthteller says:

            I am not trying to be mean or anything but there is no proof that he is not real. He could or could not be real. I depends if you believe. If you don’t believe of course, then you don’t see Santa;it is simply that. Another reason why your parents probably told you that is because they never believed and their parents before them probably didn’t believe. Since your family never believed that is probably why Santa never came to your house and that is why your parents always filled in for him. If you do believe then Santa is the one who gives you presents underneath the tree. If you don’t believe then I am really sorry that you missed your whole childhood on not believing in him. He is probably very disappointed in you and your parents for ever telling you that. Again I am not trying to be mean just stating my opinion.

      Jesus and Santa are both real! You have to be careful what you say on the Internet because God and Jesus both know what you are doing. How else are humans here? Did they magically appear with a poof then a bang? How can 51% of North Americans be wrong? JESUS IS REAL have faith and you will be rewarded with eternal life. You can save yourself right now! God understands humans make mistakes but he wants you to turn yourself around! Do it now because you don’t want the punishment!

      You seriously need to grow up and become more mature. Santa is not real, get it through your head. I feel sorry for you because your parents never told you the truth about them actually giving you presents not a mythical character. Be thankful that your Family are buying you gifts and loving you. So instead of fantasising over a character love your parents and show them your thankful. SANTA IS NOT REAL!

    He knows when you’ve been bad or good,
    So be good for goodness sake!”.

    Don’t you get it? Ur parents know when ur sleeping and when ur awake. And obviously ur parents know when you’ve been bad or good, they’re the ones ur in trouble with!

    santas not real im sorry but he is not i found that out when i was 8 because n the internet i serched up santa claus and one of the fist things that popped up is ”santa claus also known as saint nick and more is a folkloric jolly man who supposedly lives up in the north pole.” i am now ten.

  37. alycea says:

    my mom and dad dont know i know hes not real they think they are doing this for me but im doing this for them.

  38. alycea says:

    i dont even know when to tell them the damn thing.

  39. Zach says:

    I bieleve in Santa

  40. Zach says:

    Good choice jay

  41. The One And Only Believer says:

    You know what people? It really does not matter what your parents or even the internet say. It’s all your choice. If you want to believe Santa, go ahead! No one should be against people that believe. I know Santa may not be real or whatever, but still, just believe with all your heart and he will be real 😀

  42. Santa Clause (aka Saint Nic) says:

    Ho ho ho! Please believe I am real, I’ll promise to give you presents! Ho ho ho! I know this is early! But still! I promise to give the ones who believe me presents! Ho ho ho!

    ~ Santa Claus (A.K.A Saint Nicholas)

    • Autumn says:

      I do not believe you are the real Santa, actually, I know you are not the real Santa. Anyone can say they are anyone on the internet these days. Santa IS real, but your not him

    • Bill Fleming says:

      I saw the reat santa camping once in there RV we talked and he knew my name but now I don’t belive

  43. Natalie Rose Euley says:

    My parents may be “Santa”, but that’s because they put so little effort in. It was so easy to put together when the same wrapping paper was sitting around the house, the handwriting was exactly the same, etc. I found out at 11 years old. If my parents put in more effort, I might still believe. Frankly, when I have children, there will be no way that they can’t believe.

  44. maxy says:

    He is real bitches he is real

  45. Hudson says:

    If Santa isn’t real my whole world would fall I turn 10 on Christmas Eve and Christmas is important to me and there is magic we just don’t know how to harness it

  51. Bella says:

  52. Kaya says:

    I think it depends. Some who doesn’t belive in it, santa doesn’t come, but whoever does, they come. If you ask me, I belive in santa and I’m 11

  53. coolperson22 says:

    if you believe in Santa its kind of like believing in god and I mean by that NOT ALL PEOPLE believe in GOD but that’s there belief if you want to believe in SANTA then you can its a FREE COUNTRY and NO person in this WORLD cant tell you what you cant believe so believe in Santa if you want to and stay strong with that belief

  54. coolperson22 says:

    I in my belief have seen the REAL SANTA CLAUS at my grandmas house on Christmas eve at the door and no one else saw him but me because I believe in him and no one can tell me other wise because no one saw what I saw but I tell you right every single Christmas eve I go to my grandmas house with my family and we meet up and only me and my uncle hear sleigh bells because we believe and its REAL and my sister says that Santa is not real but I say to me he is

  55. lexi says:

    • Bill Fleming says:

      I’m 10 using my Dad’s computer. I learned when I was 4 that Santa was
      not real. Long story short my Dad said to our family that he got one of
      the gifts at Fred Myer. Thanks Dad 🙂 !!!

      What do you want to believe? If you want to believe then do so.. But if you don’t don’t… And remember to Respect Others Beliefs

  61. tea says:

    i am a ten year old and i belive in santa but now i dont after reading this i have searched and read to see if santa was real so now im very mad it is so close to christmas and this website just screwed it up for me thanks a lot.

  62. Victoria says:

    When I was a little girl I believe in him until I was 10 a boy told me that he isn’t real. Because he said that your parents make up stories to giving you presents. So I asked my mother she won’t tell me??? I don’t know what to say

  63. N.M says:

    You can’t really answer the question. There are many believers and non believers . That’s a fact.

  64. Katelyn says:

    There are approximately two billion children (persons under 18) in
    the world. However, since Santa does not visit children of Muslim,
    Hindu, Jewish or Buddhist (except maybe in Japan) religions, this
    reduces the workload for Christmas night to 15% of the total, or 378
    million (according to the population reference bureau). Assuming an
    average (census) rate of 3.5 children per household, that computes to 108 million homes – presuming there is at least one good child in

    Santa has about 31 hours of Christmas to work with, thanks to the
    different time zones and the rotation of the earth, assuming east to
    west (which seems logical). This works out to 967.7 visits per
    second. This is to say that for each Christian household with a good
    child, Santa has around 1/1000th of a second to park the sleigh, hop
    out, jump down the chimney, fill the stocking, distribute the
    remaining presents under the tree, eat whatever snacks have been left
    for him, get back up the chimney, jump into the sleigh, and get onto
    the next house. Assuming that each of these 108 million stops is
    evenly distributed around the earth (which, of course, we know to be
    false, but will accept for the purposes of our calculations), we are
    now talking about 0.78 miles per household. This amounts to a total
    trip of 75.5 million miles, not counting bathroom stops or breaks.

    This means Santa’s sleigh is moving at 650 miles per second–3,000
    times the speed of sound. For purposes of comparison, the fastest
    man made vehicle, the Ulysses space probe, moves at a pokey 27.4miles
    per second, and a conventional reindeer can run (at best) 15 miles
    per hour. The payload of the sleigh adds another interesting element.

    Assuming that each child gets nothing more than a medium sized LEGO
    set (two pounds), the sleigh is carrying over 500 thousands tons,
    not counting Santa himself. On land, a conventional reindeer can
    pull no more than 300 pounds. Even granting that the “flying”
    reindeer can pull 10 times the normal amount, the job can’t be done
    with eight or even nine of them—Santa would need 360,000 of them.
    This increases the payload, not counting the weight of the sleigh,
    another 54,000 tons, or roughly seven times the weight of the Queen
    Elizabeth (the ship, not the monarch). 600,000 tons travelling at 650
    miles per second creates enormous air resistance – this would heat up
    the reindeer in the same fashion as a spacecraft re-entering the
    earth’s atmosphere.

    The lead pair of reindeer would absorb 14.3 quintillion joules of
    energy per second each. In short, they would burst into flames
    almost instantaneously, exposing the reindeer behind them and
    creating deafening sonic booms in their wake. The entire reindeer
    team would be vaporized within 4.26 thousandths of a second, or right
    about the time Santa reached the fifth house on his trip. Not that it
    matters, however, since Santa, as a result of accelerating from a
    dead stop to 650 m.p.s. in .001 seconds, would be subjected to
    acceleration forces of 17,000 g’s. A 250 pound Santa (which seems
    ludicrously slim) would be pinned to the back of the sleigh by
    4,315,015 pounds of force, instantly crushing his bones and organs
    and reducing him to a dribbling mess of twitching innards.

    Therefore, if Santa ever did exist, he’s dead now.

    Merry Christmas everybody.

  65. kira says:

    I think Santa is real

  66. Rebekah says:

    He’s real alright. I heard him. the bells. the reindeer. I believe.You can think what you want, but don’t go around crushing people’s spirit’s. Get in the spirit of Christmas.

  67. Amy says:

    I believe. I don’t care. I see things that are often millimetres away from persuading me not to, but I still do, and I always will. Thanks to all those people who are just spiteful and can’t keep their beliefs to themselves and have to tell the world that what they believe is 100% true. Why is it just their beliefs that matter? What about the people who do believe? Consideration is an amazing thing. Maybe people should take a minute to think about others who do believe.

  68. Rena says:

Well i am kinda joking and kinda not i am in the middle for beliving in Santa because i wach YouTube. He also does NOT come to my house ever evan when i was 3 xC

  77. Andrea says:

    I always believed in santa but this christmas 2015 i am 10 my parents told me the truth i was heartbroken also my moms phone is connected to my ipad and i was doing homework on it so she was texting my dad and he told her that,”now i have to wait for her to go asleep so that i can take their elves out of the closet” this broke my heart cause i truly believed that my elves were real i started crying it was one of the worst days of my life. Never stop believing the feeling of believing in santa, elves,ect makes christmas fun and joyful without believing it just isnt fun anymore 🙁 #neverstopbelieving

  78. arrrghle says:

    Santa Claus is a pretend game that everybody plays. What’s wrong with that?

  79. Hanae Furugaki says:

    how come there’s santa trackers when there’s no such thing as santa? If it’s doing just for fun and an entertainment for children, why would NORAD Santa Tracker will continue their process for decades?

  80. Reanne says:

    Santa is the most fake thing ever yesterday I asked my parents where the go my notebook and this note book was from “santa” and they said they got I from Ross

  81. Ryan says:

    I seriously don’t care I just like the gifts

  82. max says:

    Its fine if u dont believe in him. He’s not real. I know that. I put all of the presents under the tree this year and no new ones were there in the morning. I moved my little sisters elf on the shelf doll every night in December. Santa is fun to believe in, but at some point u have to grow up. Santa is mostly for me part of the Christmas spirit. I know he is not real but try to imagine Christmas without the myth of santa.

  100. Becca says:

    I like how you described “santa” he is in our hearts, not in on our roof! He is a character that keeps the Christmas spirit yet, you cannot see or touch all you can do is believe! and plus you still get the gifts either way!

  101. Becca says:

    you’ll never see such a guy, but if your a person to imagine the good things in life you’ll be just as happy with or without him!

  102. Becca says:

    I’m okay with that, and I’m 11!

  103. Briggan says:

    It doesn’t matter if you believe in Santa or not. Anyone can believe in what they want to believe in. If you say Santa isn’t real then that’s your opinion. If someone says he is real then that’s their opinion.

  113. Davey says:

    Ok. I have been through alot this Christmas time. I am 10 years old and I believe. One day, I put up my camera near my elf and I saw him flying and my parents had no clue he was there. I was home alone. Also, on Christmas Day, I woke up at 1 am and saw my parents downstairs with wrap. After reading this page, I believe. You guys are so inspirational… I mean, why do the haters even come to this page if they already think they know the truth? They just want to pick on kids. God and Santa are great friends and in my mind, the people who do calculations are dumb… We can either believe or not believe. It is not a matter of science nor history… But culture… Kids like me are so confused about this and I really think there is no point looking this up on the internet. We should just believe what we want to and not care. Our beliefs are our beliefs. God Bless everyone and have a merry Christmas!!!

  114. Hell. I cool says:

    Santa is fake my mom told me

  115. Matt says:

    Santa is real to everyone who believes he is real. If you don’t believe in Santa, then go ahead and believe it’s your parents – no one is going to stop you. But to all the people that do believe, then keep on believing because he does exist.. trust me! Santa only stops existing when you stop believing in him. #themagicexists

  123. Amaya says:

    You all need to stop. Let people believe what they want. Don’t call people idiots, call them childish, make them feel stupid, or put them down. That is very rude. I’m 11 and I believe in Santa and I don’t care what others think. Make fun of me all you want. It’s not going to make you look any smarter. If anything, it makes you look like the childish one. Grow up.

  124. Amaya says:

I wrote a note on Christmas Eve and say to Santa that I want a bike for Christmas , then when its is Christmas I have 2 bike! I am only 12 years old and I am hard of hearing .

On Christmas Eve I wrote a note to Santa that I want a bike for Christmas . Then when it Christmas day I got 2 bikes! and yes Santa is real! its the same as Jesus. If anyone believe in Jesus so that means that you Should Believe in Santa. I am 12 years old and I am hard of hearing. I am a boy.
