Many of the newer homes here in Northern California don’t come with a fireplace. It doesn’t get too cold (60° is considered blustery), so homebuilders are often leaving them out of new homes altogether.
I took the boys to a friend’s house the other day, and it was one of those newer homes without a fireplace.
They noticed the lack of a fireplace and the first thing they asked was how Santa would visit their friend on Christmas Eve? How would Santa slide into the house with his gift bag? How would he eat the cookies? And most importantly, how would he deliver the presents? (Insert slight four-year-old kid panic here!)
I told them that he had a magical key that would allow him to enter the home on Christmas Eve to leave presents under the tree!
Their friend didn’t need to worry, because the Santa key would let him in!

I think the Santa Claus Key is adorable. I remember asking my mother about how Santa would get in and my kids used to ask me that as well. I love it!!
