    Have you seen Arthur Christmas. There is a Mrs Christmas who looks after him and mends his uniform whilst The big man and his elves prepare for Xmas . She also looks after their sons who take over when he becomes too old to do the long flight. So it is passed down the generations

    Use my standard answer:

    "gosh, I'm not sure. What do you think?"

    I've noticed over the last couple of years that 1st of Sep is pretty much the norm for starting mince pies, I do think that is bad, but they have normally not stoped selling hot cross buns!!!!

    DH once asked that question about years ago.

    I told him that once upon a time many years ago a really kind man enjoyed giving presents and he had no children of his own so gave them to children in the surrounding villages.

    But BEFORE he was ever around no one "did Christmas" and one day this man who was named Nicholas was found in a storm and taken to a magic place...

    You see where this is going... Santa Claus The Movie lol...

    After I told him he went... "Oh, ok" shrugged and ran off

    2. He does not believe in Father Christmas.
    3. He IS Father Christmas.
    4. He looks like Father Christmas.
