Years ago, I read this wonderful short story in a ladies' magazine, about a little girl who asked her grandma or mother or aunt about is santa real? the grandma (I think) gave the little girl $20 and said...let me tell you a story. And she proceeded to tell her about love and charity and gift-giving and how it is good to give in secret, and gave the $20 so the little girl now "graduated" to get to go shopping and wear a santa hat and secretly be a santa to some underprivileged people (or maybe it was the little girl's younger brother!) and give them a gift on their porch...something like that anyway! I do not know the name of the story or author, but LOVED the way the story dealt with IS SANTA REAL. On the old cricut board, one of my sister cricuteers found the article and sent me the link. Unfortunately I lost it again. Does anyone know this story or a link to it?

I don't have any little ones, but thought I'd always let my little one wear elf ears or reindeer antlers or something but no santa hat, and then when she asked and I told her the story, we'd go shopping, both of us in our santa hats!

I think I have to do this with my Grandson as he has reached this age.... What a blessing this is and I am sure it would be passed on from generation to generation.

Thank you so much, Joyce. This is not the same story that I read in the magazine that day, but the jist is exactly the same. Grandma gives money to the child and the child is buying a gift and becomes a Santa Claus. Almost the exact same story! so the idea is a wonderful way to answer "Is there a Santa?". To me it was the best answer that I had heard of!
But I am sure that the story I read had the grandma giving her child the Santa hat to put on ...sort of like "now you have graduated and earned the right to wear the Santa Hat" or something like that.
