We have 4 boys and a 6 year old girl!! She's the youngest & still believes in Santa. I threatened the boys with severe punishment if they in any way destroy her belief😜

    Doesn’t everybody believe in Santa?

    Keeping the magic of Santa alive these days must really be a near impossible task!!

    The children's peers of their own ages can spoil the most sacred things we had in our generation for sure. I just hope your youngest granddaughter can keep that magic in her heart always!

    You would think that with all the songs memorializing events involving Santa, that all doubts about his existence would be beyond questioning. He's got a sordid past of kissing mommy and running over grandma amidst doling out gifts, spying on kids, and failing to address the mistreatment of a unique reindeer and his weight problem. Near as I can tell he's the type of guy I should be hanging out with.

    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    Some what related long story so sorry and stick with me

    Back when our two sons were just young little guys

    We bought a VHS camera early on when the cameras were just getting popular i was new to it really not sure how to use it or what could be done with it

    But that Christmas i also I bought a Santa suit

    at that time we had our sons and most nieces and nephews all in the age range of Santa being real

    So I had the suit on and passed out gifts at my parents house to all of them Day before Christmas

    So christmas eve at our house later that night my wife had not used the camera so she put on the Santa suit while our boys were in bed and I ran the camera

    I video taped her putting all rhe presents under the tree and around the living room

    With out knowing what I did I turned the camera off helped wife and as she was standing next to door

    I started the video back up panned around the room

    When our sons got up we played the video to prove Santa had stopped by

    What I did by accident was stopped the video wife had left the area I stared it back up

    It made the video look like Santa placed all the toys walked over by the door and then just vanished into thin air

    My sons stared yelling it really was santa-claus .

    I had did a stop motion trick by accident

    Made Santa there and then just vanish

    I will never forget the excitement and smiles on my sons faces yelling it really was Santa

    But even with out a camera when kids are young and believe in the magic of Christmas is a wonderful thing .
