Yes, Nathan, There Is A Santa Claus

Daddy Steve:  Christmas preparations continue in Gregoropolis, with Holly Belle as self-appointed director.  Not everyone is on board with this...

Holly Belle: Nathan, you need to unpack this box of decorations.
Nathan: How'd you get to be the boss around here?
Holly Belle: Because I have the clipboard.
Nathan: Well, you're not the boss of me!

Holly Belle: You know, Nathan, just because it's this close to Christmas don't think for one minute that Santa Claus isn't watching you.  In fact, he watches extra close this time of year.
Nathan: Well, I'm not sure there even is a Santa Claus.

With this bold statement, a collective gasp of shock and amazement echoed throughout Gregoropolis.

Wesley: Did Nathan just say he doesn't believe in Santa?!?
Emile: Sacre bleu!
Oliver: I can't believe what I'm hearing!
Frank: NO Santa!?!
Rhoda: Nathan's kind of a rebel.  I like him.

Holly Belle: You realize if you're wrong, you've cooked your goose as far as presents go.
Meghan: Yeah, Nathan, Santa doesn't take kindly to non-believers.
Nathan: Consider this: Mikko and Tyler are always in trouble, but they still get as many presents as that goody-goody Robin.

Tyler: We're not always in trouble.
Mikko: Yeah, we're adventurers!  There's a big difference.
Robin: And I'm not a goody-goody, either.
Tyler: Actually, you kind of are.
Kaveh: I'm sure Santa sees the good in everyone.

Nathan: Alright, answer this, then, how can a fat old guy like Santa fit down our skinny chimney?

Wesley: Well, hmmmmmm...
Oliver: He does have a point there.
Holly Belle: No, he does not.  There's a perfectly logical answer to that.
Meghan: Now quiet, everyone.  Holly Belle has the answer.  Go ahead, HB.
Holly Belle: Thank you, Meghan.  If Santa can't use the chimney, he just gets in using a skeleton key.  That's why Christmas is less than 2 months after Halloween; so there are still plenty of skeletons lying around to make keys.

Wesley: Ah, yes!
Oliver: She does have a point there.
Frank: Makes sense to me.

Ravi: Patrick, what do you think of all of this?  Is it logical to believe in Santa?
Patrick: I'm not sure, Ravi, but I do know that it's definitely not logical to question a good thing.

such a serious discussion, but I have to agree with Patrick...don't examine the good deal too closely!! I love the origins of the skeleton key!! I didn't know! lol!!

Oh I loved this...especially as I am struggling to get into the Christmas spirit. Their logic is absolutely delightful and I just love the Skeleton Key story as well, it is wonderful! Thank you.

Holly Belle is definitely a potential candidate for US President in another twenty years or so ! Looks like she's getting in practice early ;)

Skeleton keys laying around after Halloween? Well I never ! We in the village will definitely be looking around to see if there are any around here and making sure one's handy for Santa in case he's had too many mince pies by the time he gets to us!

and I'm with Patrick don't question a good thing... Merry Christmas x

I am with Patrick! It is not logical to question a good thing and Santa is a very good thing! Merry Christmas Daddy Steve to you and your fantastic Sasha family. 😊🎄🎅🏻 xxx

Merry Christmas to all of you at Gregoropolis! I love your blog!

Love their logic! I hope Santa did come for them all, even those who were not sure about his existence.

Such sad times when one stops believing in Santa.
PS. Luckily I still believe and so he personally delivers an annual Sasha Doll to me on Christmas Eve.
Love your kids conversations and the reasoning that follows. Secretly wish that I and The Brood Remainers could do this!
