Dear Santa, Are you real? If you are real please write back. ** UPDATE CHRISTMAS DAY**

Posted by   + Show Post

I found a letter written by my seven year old to Santa asking if he was real and to write her back. I have given it some deep thoughts what to write... 

So here is what I wrote that will be placed with her present on Christmas Day. What do you think?

---------------------------------------------

Dear Makenzie,

Thank you for your letter asking if I am real. I want you to know that this is a very good and important question.

 

The Christmas season one time a year brings excitement and joy to children, adults, and even pets around the world. The spirit of Christmas is to believe that throughout the year, we have done our best to do good things, to be good, and to celebrate the goodness we have done. Believing in yourself is the most important thing ever. If you do not believe in yourself, you will miss out on many good opportunities to see good things in your life.

 

Indeed Santa watches you everyday. Sees you when you are sleeping, when you are awake, when you are good, and when you are bad. Santa is the person that loves you the most and takes care of you when you are sick, gives you hugs when you are feeling down.

 

There will be many people in your life that will come and go, some will stay for a long time. Who is the most important people to you Makenzie? Who loves you more than anyone else in the world? Who loves giving you gifts and sometimes surprises?

 

The people that matter most is your family. You will never find greater love from anyone else. Your family loves you everyday regardless if you are good or bad. Remember this, it should matter most the people that love you most.

 

Love,

Santa


**** UPDATE ***

She got the letter this morning and read it to her daddy, they woke me up after they pulled the stockings down. It appears she is not ready to accept Santa is not real. I think she knows deep inside, but wants to believe and continue to believe. We have decided to just go with the flow.  I will probably present the letter again next year and the year after that until she is ready :) 

That is the update, for now, Santa is real :)

If that's typed up before you print I'd make sure to edit ever to every day.

It's cute otherwise (: I like how you did that.

thank you meow... It kina makes me sad though because she is a very high spirited girl. She already asked me once last month and I told her the truth not bluntly or direct but ya know kina hinting to her... Apparently she is not taking it well :|

Quoting TiffanyRose06: Obviously well thought out and written with love

When we grew up I don't remember ever really believing.. I'm sure I did when I was extremely little but my grandparents (who raised us) bought gifts throughout the month and wrapped them and stuck them under the tree right away.. So I knew they were "Santa"
With my kids, we buy gifts and put them under the tree but on Christmas even put the gifts Santa brought..
Soooo.. What I'm gettin at.. (lol) is I'm not sure how I will handle that situation when it comes
