Santa is real and always will be in our hearts
It’s a magical time when kids believe in Santa so let’s keep Santa Real
We all remember those moments as children ourselves and watching those magical moments with our own children. The wonder and magic of believing in Santa. Those beautiful moments when they are so excited to get ready for Santa, leaving out cookies and milk or whatever they think is Santa’s favorite snack. The hope of hearing hooves of reindeer on the roof, trying to be the best they can be to be on the nice list. Those times are magical when you see the joy in children’s eyes in anticipation of Santa’s visit, so why not keep Santa real, in the hearts and minds of children everywhere.
Not only is it a magical time for parents and children alike but did you know that exerts have found their childhood belief in Santa has a number of benefits when it comes to cognitive development? Yep it sure does, it encourages them to expand their imaginations (no surprise there), which helps to strengthen critical thinking.
Believing in Santa benefits the whole family.
It benefits the whole family and not just because mom or dad get to eat the cookies and milk. Santa helps to instill family traditions, whether it’s hanging up your stockings or the good ole cookies and milk. It’s a nostalgic time where we adults recall our own believe in Santa and our magical moments. I know I do and I enjoyed every minute of when my daughter believed in Santa and now that she’s a teen she believes in the magic of Santa, the joy of the holidays and spending time together, doing those traditions we’ve built over the years.

How about some fun Santa FAQs?
How old is Santa?
While Santa’s exact age is unknown (he’s not that big on birthdays) some experts believe that he’s 1,746 years old. But don’t worry, he’s not planning on retiring any time soon.
One of our Holiday Traditons is a family photo in front of the Christmas tree every year.
Why does Santa Like Cookies & Milk?
No one can live off of cookies and milk all year long, Santa included, but our jolly hero has always had a sweet tooth, and simply chooses Christmas Eve as his night to indulge. After all, Santa works so hard on the night before Christmas that he figures why not reward himself a bit along the way.
