My grandson just turned 6 and he’s at that age where he wants to know everything about Santa Claus. This year he’s asking an endless stream of questions like “how does Santa get in without a chimney?” I realized that he’s so observant, and so curious, that we’re going to need a new cover story. Let’s face it, the 20th century Santa just isn’t credible with 21st century kids.
I came up with something that I think will work and I’m posting it here for (grand)parents in similar situations. Feel free to use it with my blessing. Here it is:
With all the new people on the Earth, Santa ran out of room at the North Pole. So he built a big warehouse in the Amazon.
