This put a smile on my face! You expressed brilliantly the angst that children experience when they reach the 'Is Santa really real?' stage, as well as the dilemma faced by parents everywhere in judging how best to answer that question. Uncle Al's response is one of the best I have heard. Good job!

Oh dear, I'm not really a believer in Santa, but this piece (and the wonderful way that you wrote it) has my heart a-changing! Fantastic descriptions that painted a lovely picture for the reader. And a perfect title!
Kids are wiser than we think sometimes. This made me chuckle.

This was a sweet story and I loved Uncle Al. His tender way of explaining Santa warmed my heart. Good job.
