“Mom, How Can Santa Be Real?” The Truth About Santa

My 8 year old daughter has begun asking questions about Santa’s existence.  On the way home from piano lessons tonight, she asked, “Mom, how can Santa be real.” I know it won’t be long before I’m going to have to give her straight answers to the Santa questions.

In poking around online trying to get some ideas from other parents about how they have handled this sensitive subject, I found a letter written by Martha Brockenbrough to her daughter Lucy, which answers the Santa question so beautifully that I cannot imagine any other way to tell my daughters the truth. With this letter as a parenting tool, I feel they will be given a gift that will help them keep the magic of Santa in their hearts forever regardless of the season.

This is the actual letter I will give my daughters when they are ready with much gratitude to Martha Brockenbrough.
