Does Santa receive any presents?

Dear Ernest,

Does Santa receive any presents?

Bellingham, USA

Yes, every year.

Santa is a big believer in Santa. He hangs his stocking every year.

I know this sounds goofy. What is even goofier is that Santa is always surprised by what he gets for Christmas every year. Last year he received some new golf balls and he was like, well, a little boy on Christmas. He just couldn’t wait to use them. He was so surprised he just giggled.

How does that happen?

I’m not really sure. I think Mrs. Claus has something to do with it. Not that Santa would sit on her knee or anything but I think Mrs. Claus works with the elves to surprise Santa every Christmas.

Santa often jokes “I’m just a delivery boy!” but in his case, I think it might be a little bit true. I think Mrs. Claus makes the arrangements and has the elves wrap it up and slip it into Santa’s sack. Santa comes to his own house like he does any other to deliver presents.

Why wouldn’t he include himself?

Not sure where to ask questions, but my daughter Veronica wants to know if Santa Claus has any allergies.
