Hobo Santa

Isaak's been asking if I hide The Elf on the Shelf, and if I'm Santa. I haven't come clean about any of it. Saint Nicholas is in the encyclopedia, and we have an autobiography about how he came to be.

He is in 4th grade. I stopped believing about then. That's when Mica stopped believing. I took Mica aside and told him because I didn't want Mica to keep asking when Isaak was hearing his questions. When I came clean to Mica I said, "That's why I dropped all the Easter eggs when you walked in on me." He said, "Mom you mean you're the Easter Bunny too!? Don't tell me you're the Tooth Fairy as well!!!" Mica didn't believe in a person - Santa, but he did believe in a bunny and fairy.

I asked Mica, "Does Isaak still believe in Santa?" Mica said, "I don't know. What happens if he doesn't?" I said, "Well I guess there's no reason for Santa to bring gifts then." His eyes got wide. I said, "Just kidding Mica. Santa will still bring you things."

Isaak asked, "Mom is Santa some kind of stalker? He knows so much about me!" I said, "I don't know Isaak." His interpretation of fat, jolly man has certainly made a more dark turn.

The Elf on the Shelf Brita brought this traditional Santa I got to review from CSI Wall Panels.


I thought it was so classic and neat looking.

Mica: The Elf Brita is having a shoulder ride on some man statue.

Isaak: I think the Elf Brita brought us a homeless man.

Mica: Isaak he's called a hobo.

Me: Boys he's a classic Santa.

In Unison They Both Said: He's a Santa? He doesn't look like Santa. He looks homeless.

There you have it...we have a hobo in our living room. 

Did you believe in Santa? If you did, how did you find out there wasn't really a Santa? Or maybe there is one. ;)

I already put up this disclaimer: I got the the item mentioned in this review from CSI Wall Panels. CSI Wall Panels didn't influence me on what to write in this review. I only review things that I feel like my readers - you will enjoy, or are a good fit for my family.

Very nice.

As a kid no because I grew up in an impoverished situation with a parental unit who was a Communist. So, Santa was not on the radar. As an adult, I believe in the notion of was Kris Kringle and Santa does to help people.

Lol, love the hobo. I can't figure out if broxton still does or not, I hope, but not sure. Love your Santa. Trying to determine if I'm gonna collect snow men or santa.

Love your Hobo Santa ;) You will never look at him the same though, I am sure.

I can't remember when I stopped believing. Maybe first or second grade. Allison believed all the way through 7th! While she knows the truth about Santa, she does still get up every day to look for our Elf on the Shelf. I don't think I'm going to ever get a break from moving it around! It's okay though. I still think it's a fun tradition to keep doing.

lol. Hobo Santa.

My husband's best friend is Catholic, so they were a little surprised last year when there 6 year old asked if Santa was dead because he's a "saint". :) Hopefully, you made it through one more year of Isaak still believing.
