This whole Santa concept is really confusing me. - Page 2

post #21 of 22
It's a little late for this but we only do stockings and one joint present (for the kids) from Santa. The rest comes from us. They don't request anything from Santa so we don't have this issue.

Most kids have gone through the disappointment of wishing for something and not getting it. They all lived through it.

It is hard when you're not steering the concept.

 

For us we laid out some ground rules:

 

Santa only has so much space in the sled, so he can't bring everyone everything.

The elves need manufacturing lead time.

 

:)

 

We do try to inject a little last-minute magic but if we can't, we can't.

 

It might just be that this is the year she finds out how it works, y'know?
