How Old Is Santa Claus?

Posted by Santa Claus on November 8th, 2008

Many of my friends ask me, “How old are you Santa Claus?”  I also hear people whisper, “Is Santa Claus old?”.  “How old is Santa Claus?”.  “What age is Santa Claus?”.  Or, “When was Santa’s birthday?”. 

I laugh when I hear them whisper.  After all, I may be very old, but I do have very good hearing!  Ho! Ho! Ho!

Yes, everyone wants to know how old I am.  Can I tell you a secret?  I am just a wee bit older than Mrs. Claus.  But don’t tell anyone.  Mrs. Claus doesn’t like people to know how old she is.  So, I tell people “I am a wee bit older than my whiskers.  And that is all Mrs. Claus will let me say!”

I guess I better keep my whiskers.  Otherwise, I won’t be able to say that any more!  Ho! Ho! Ho!

Sometimes, to keep people guessing, I also say I am as old as my tongue and a little older than my teeth!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.  How old do you think I am?  (Scroll down to leave your message for me or to see what others have written!)

    My friend Riley,Adam,Brynn said:

    Santa I believe you are only as old as you feel. No matter how old you are you are still young at heart and that is all that matters.I also believe that god made you santa for a reason therefore no matter how old people may think you are god created you for one reason, and thats for all the boys and girls around the world. You are the one person that probably doesnt really have an age because your santa claus. We are so excited for you to stop by our house. We have tried to be very good nice kids for our mom and dad, even though at times it can be hard because my brother & sister including myself do get on eachothers nerves quite a bit. But no matter what I still love them. We will keep trying to be good kids because all year we look forward to your arrival christmas eve. Hope ur travel is safe tonight Please tell Mrs. Clause merry christmas from all of us. Rilay Adam and Brynn
