How Is Santa Gonna Get In?

 

On yesterday's radio show, a long-time listener, Victor, called in. He wanted to share this cute story.

Without a chimney, how does Santa get into the house? This question was asked by a distressed little five-year-old. He was so concerned that there would be no presents because his house did not have a fireplace.

 

Santa's key

 

Quick thinking parents responded: Santa has a special key for all homes, condos, and apartments that don't have direct chimney access. And that appeased the little boy.

Sounds like Santa has his own electronic key or a Phone app just like the Realtors® Instead of a Sentri Key there must be a Santa Magic Key.

Have a wonderful Christmas Week.

I remember asking that important question when I was a kid.  My mom said she'd make certain the back door was left unlocked.  In those days it wasn't a worry to do that.

My mind doesn't go that fast these days.  Good thinking, make it a great day

Hi Margaret- that was quick thinking on the part of the parents. This is a good answer to remember if we are asked that question.

Good morning Margaret. This is a wise and cute response. My parents never had a fireplace either.

I wondered that as well, but of course a magic key makes perfect sense!

That is a cute one, and a perfect response. Santa doesn't need no stinkin' chimney! Lol.

Great story Margaret. I wish my Supra key worked as well as Santa's key!

Posted by Tom Bailey (Margaret Rudd & Associates Inc.) about 2 months ago

Hi Margaret:

That's a great story. No doubt there are plenty of kids growing up in homes without fireplaces. I did, as did my own kids in their early years. The door story works well.
