When Princess was 3 or 4, I tried to tell her that Santa wasn't real. Well, she thought I had gone and lost my mind. Then she set me straight.
It wasn't until she was 5 that she was brave enough to sit on Santa's lap. It was then that she asked Santa if he brought presents to the kids who celebrate Hanukkah. Santa assured her that he did.
So, if you go to see Santa at the mall and tell him what you want for Hanukkah, he will deliver it to you on the first night of Hanukkah while you are sleeping. On the first morning of Hanukkah, as soon as you wake up, your present will be there by the fireplace.
So you see, it's a good thing that Santa comes to the mall so early. After all, what would the Jewish kids do if he waited until December?!
