      I absolutely do believe in Santa Claus! My teenager's teacher tells me I have to tell her the "truth" about Santa. Maybe I need to explain the truth to the teacher! As a single mom I learned the real truth, and there were some years we would not have had much of a Christmas at our house without dear Santa. Yes, he is very real!
