    Default Questions for those that do santa

    How does santa know what colour theme your tree is this year?

    Do you use the same paper?

    Does his presents match the theme or is it wildly different?

    Does santa use them same paper every year?

    I don't bother with themes/matching. Not while my kids are young. Ds can decorate the tree however he likes. I use whatever wrapping paper that catches my fancy at the shops

    I have a theme every year and of course santa has his own paper 😉

    Santa doesn't wrap presents in our house because I hate wrapping. But my kids only get one or two things from Santa (usually the thing they really want) and they get left on the coffee table in living room next to the plate of cookies, milk and carrots.

    This year, the kids are getting a trampoline from santa. I sure hope it isn't too complicated to assemble. Plus my eldest is getting an elsa and Anna doll, my son is getting some Octonauts toy and still haven't decided what Santa will get my youngest yet but I've got heaps of things on layby so will decide later.

    Santa presents are wrapped in completely different wrapping paper that doesn't match the theme and they also go in the santa sacks. He mixes the paper up every year

    The Santa paper is different from the normal present paper and each kids Santa pressies are wrapped in different paper (ie DD's paper is red, DS1's is green etc...) to make present identification easier!

    Santa paper is different every year and I don't have a theme other than a) the shiner the better and b) anything goes!
