  • I would just tell them we have to help Santa, he has a lot work to do.

  • my kids actually never asked!...Maybe it was because we gave them gifts from US and from one each from my guess is that they must have figured we were helping the parents

  • Yes, he does.

    What we are doing is donating to the kids that do not have home, someone needs to help Santa?

  • Good kids never asked. Last year, we adopted a family for Christmas. We bought the family Christmas dinner, cookies and gitfs for each member of the family. My kids never asked. They just knew we were doing something nice for someone on Christmas! It was really special and afterall, it's about giving.

  • We did the angel tree this year, my oldest will be four next month and is very sharp! The only thing she wanted to do was meet and be friends with the little boy we adopted from the tree, she thought he needed friends to go with his toys. I told her that we just had his name and age so I did not know who he was and I was sorry. She never once asked about Santa.

  • I would say maybe their parents are the ones on here who refuse to let them have imaginations and believe in Santa and if you don't believe you don't receive. Ha.
