No Chimney? Not to worry, Santa Is Still Coming!
You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town!
Yes, that’s right everyone…the countdown to the arrival of Santa Claus is winding down which means that now, more than ever, we must be on our absolute BEST behavior!
As you deck you halls and hang your mistletoe, you may be part of the 60% of homeowners without a fireplace wondering just how exactly Santa will be stopping in to drop of your presents.
“Only 40.3% of homes in the U.S. have fireplaces, according to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association, meaning Mr. Claus must find an alternative entry into about 60% of homes on Christmas Eve.” (WSJ)
The answer is simple… magic and a key!
Santa’s Magic Key Poem
Dear Santa, we have no chimney
as you can plainly see,
And I was terribly worried
that you would pass over me.
We hung this very special key
right by the door.
Then Mom told me to jump into bed;
and not to worry anymore.
Your magic will make this key fit,
to open our door.
So you can come in tonight
and tip-toe across the floor.
Santa Claus has a magic key that he uses to get into homes, apartments, townhouses and condos without a chimney. He also uses this key for homes that have a chimney that is too small for him to fit down (too many Christmas cookies makes it a tight fit).
While Santa has his own special key that works on any home he visits, CeeBee the elf said he also enjoys collecting keys that have been left out by children from all over the world. If you want to leave him a key, you can make one or you can buy one.
Enjoy your Christmas and don’t forget to leave out cookies for Santa and carrots for his reindeer!
