Santa is a big deal here, we all love the preparation for Christmas, and all the exciting things that come together before the big day. Christmas Eve is always a really special time, opening the Christmas Eve Box, putting food out for Santa and the reindeer and watching a Christmas movie together. Not to mention putting out the Santa sacks of course.

The first year Santa’s truth was questioned was two years ago when we took the children to see Santa and he was clearly having a bad day.

He was grumpy and his beard fell off and it was not the greatest experience. After that the big kids decided he was a fake and demanded an explanation.

What we decided on was – that visits to Santa are not always ‘the real Santa’ because that just wouldn’t be possible but rather that these ‘Santas’ are helpers sent by the real Santa to assist him, along with all the elves.


This is what we have stuck to until we visited Laplanduk this year, which is clearly the home of the real Santa.

Have you had a close call like this?

Why not pop over to The Mummy Balancing Act to check out how Santa goes down there.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from all at Mummy Fever.
