    Daughter leaves her mother a note...

    I NEED TO KNOW, she wrote, using capital letters for emphasis. ARE YOU SANTA? TELL ME THE TRUTH.

    Dear Lucy,

    Thank you for your letter. You asked a very good question: ďAre you Santa?Ē

    I know youíve wanted the answer to this question for a long time, and Iíve had to give it careful thought to know just what to say.

    The answer is no. I am not Santa. There is no one Santa.

    I am the person who fills your stockings with presents, though. I also choose and wrap the presents under the tree, the same way my mom did for me, and the same way her mom did for her. (And yes, Daddy helps, too.)

    I imagine you will someday do this for your children, and I know you will love seeing them run down the stairs on Christmas morning. You will love seeing them sit under the tree, their small faces lit with Christmas lights.

    This wonít make you Santa, though.

    Santa is bigger than any person, and his work has gone on longer than any of us have lived. What he does is simple, but it is powerful. He teaches children how to have belief in something they canít see or touch.

    Itís a big job, and itís an important one. Throughout your life, you will need this capacity to believe: in yourself, in your friends, in your talents and in your family. Youíll also need to believe in things you canít measure or even hold in your hand. Here, I am talking about love, that great power that will light your life from the inside out, even during its darkest, coldest moments.

    Santa is a teacher, and I have been his student, and now you know the secret of how he gets down all those chimneys on Christmas Eve: he has help from all the people whose hearts heís filled with joy.

    With full hearts, people like Daddy and me take our turns helping Santa do a job that would otherwise be impossible.

    So, no. I am not Santa. Santa is love and magic and hope and happiness. Iím on his team, and now you are, too.

    I love you and I always will.

    Mama

    Santa is real in the morals and lessons he teaches. I really like your story. Thank your for sharing.
