Listen up kid, there ain’t no such thing as Santa (Dadsnet alert)


#21

The spirit of Christmas died right there ^^^

Indeed,also told them the tooth fairy used to be a hooker :+1:

Terri has an App on her phone . Santa rings and and speaks to Marley. Reinforces that she has to be a good girl etc. Her face genuinely lights up.

The thing about deception is to try and keep as close to the truth as possible. With this in mind I have told fruits of loin 1 and 2 that Santa lives in Ilford and he gets very cross if you meddle with his or any adults toys or sit in his / their chairs…I would never have arrived at such a boon without the help, care and support of AA Butchers .

Phones were around when you were a kid? :flushed:


#27

He is not dead but asleep.


#28

Yes, they were relatively new but we did have them.

Presumably your family would engage a boy to take a note or had stamps come along by then?


#29

Marconi via Cape Race was the en vogue method of contacting Santa back then I believe.


#30

As a kid, it was always Father Christmas in our house. Nothing to do with any German connection, just a regional thing, I think. All my mates referred to him as FC too. Never Santa.


#31

Does he also drive a Porsche panamera?


#32


#33

Serving suggestion?


#34

Saw this on facebook…

Certainly one of the better ways of telling kids about it.

tl;dr
