Will Santa be coming to your house? We have been told when we were children that Santa comes to our house on Christmas Eve and leaves presents under the Christmas tree. Children love the idea that a jolly, fat man will bring them gifts (hopefully) that they have asked for. If the children are "Good" then Santa is guaranteed to make a stop at their house. Christmas morning they arise at the crack of dawn to see what Santa brought them. As they open the gifts from Santa they laugh and giggle with anticipation. It's such a happy, magical time for children. Parents love to see the expressions on their children's faces as they open their gifts. Joy and love is in the air, and everyone is happy and excited. Yes, Santa showed up again as promised, and all is well.
When children get a little older, they start to wonder and doubt about that Jolly fat man in the red suit. What does a parent tell their child when the child starts to doubt Santa exists?
