Like many of you I grew up believing in Santa Claus, in fact my mother was so good at making us believe in him that I didn’t find out till I was in 4th grade that he didn’t exist.

My 4th grade teacher told me, after I was having a disagreement with one of my classmates and I wouldn't be lying if I said I felt betrayed.

Today’s kids learn at a very early age where who puts those presents under the tree, and some are raised knowing the truth about Santa Claus.

I liked believing and even after I knew I kept the secret from my younger brothers and sister for as long as they accepted it.

My Uncle had a Santa Clause suit and he would come over and wait till we weren’t looking, and sneak up stairs into the attic, by then I knew what was going on, but my younger brother and sister who were 5 and 6 were amazed when he stomped his feet and yelled’ ho ho ho’ as he came down the stairs into the living room.

I raised my kids to believe in Santa Claus until they got to the age where it was time to let them know the truth, I think they appreciated the way we made it magical and fun.

Many parents today do not believe in telling their kids there is a Santa Claus, so you have to ask them before you engage their children in the whole Santa Clause thing.

I think kids need to be able to use their imagination and believe in things when they’re young.

I will always be grateful that my parents made believed in Santa Claus and when out of their way to make it fun and magical.

Here is some fun you can have with your kids, grandkids or anybody, it’s the reindeer cam where you can view Santa’ s Reindeer and see Santa reading stories.
