Thoughts from the oldest the seven year old about the jolly man.....all uttered today while adults tried to assemble a "self-lit" tree.
"Why would I waste my time talking to the mall Santa? The real Santa doesn't have time to sit in a mall all day. "
"Does Santa ever die?"
"Does Santa have kids? Because if he dies, one of his kids could take over."
"Does Santa Claus know what you are thinking?"
"Maybe Santa Claus will know that you have really been trying to be good, but sometimes you just make mistakes."
