Why Does Santa Claus Come Down The Chimney?

Many people ask me, “Santa Claus, why do you come down the chimney?”

Well, the main reason I use the chimney is that it is faster!   After all, the and sleigh are on the roof anyway.

Although, a long time ago, I tried a different way!  It’s a very, VERY silly story.

Yes, it was a very, very long time ago.  The were drinking hot cocoa with those fancy imported marshmallows.  They wanted to come up with a better way for me to deliver presents.  They were trying to think of something that everyone has in their home.

Well, had to go to the washroom because of all the hot cocoa.  He was in there a long time.   Everyone heard lots of noise.  There was lots of flushing and gurgling.

When he came out he had a big grin on his face.  He said, “I have the perfect way for Santa to get into every home!”  Can you guess what it was?

Clumsy told the elves his idea.   Faster than reindeer fly, the elves made me a special red Santa wetsuit, hat, snorkel, flippers and swimming goggles.  Yes, they wanted Santa to pop into houses through the potty!

When they told me I thought it was the craziest idea I had ever heard!  Somehow, the elves convinced me.  After all, everyone has a toilet, they said.

Well, it was one of the coldest Christmasses ever!  But, I was ready to try popping into houses thru the potty.

OK.   I was ready for my first house.  But when I popped out of the potty there was Mamma in her ‘kerchief and Dad in his cap, just settling in for a long winter’s nap!

They had never seen Santa wearing a red Santa wetsuit, flippers on his feet, snorkel and goggles before.  I was quite a sight!

They screamed.

I screamed.

They screamed some more.

They ran.

I tried to run.  But, it is hard to run with flippers on your feet!  So, I fell.

“That’s it”, I said.  “No more popping into the potty for this poor Santa!”.

And that’s why Santa comes down the chimney!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.   Do you think that was the silliest idea ever?  How would you like me to deliver presents at your home?  (You can leave a message for me.   Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)

  8. I think going down the toilet is a little bit disgusting.What the germs anyway?

  9. I dont think its the silliest idea ever. I think that Santa should come inside of the house through the telephone wires.

  10. did you know my favourite time of the year is christmas!!!!!!!!! because i love it how we share christmas with our family from all around the world but just one question how do you fly around to houses in just 1 night. you should be in the book of world records bye bye p.s YOU ROCK bye

  11. 19.3.11 19th march 2011 popping through the potty was crazy! i think its better to go down the chimney and get soot on you instead of potty

  12. that is so funny but im so not allowed too make fun of you or im on the nuty list so i fink that the chimney is better then the potty so im going to tell the elves that they should make sensible choces. love from deboraxxxx

  13. santa i really don’t know why u did what he elf told you but anyways if i were u i would rather go down a chimmney than going thru a toilet!!!

  14. Why in the world did you think that was a better option? You should know better to NOT go in the potty!But,I really did like your story.

  15. dear santa i looked at elves ideas i thought they were great on christmas eve i hope u got back to the north pole safely and the reinders. ps thank you for the laptap and send you another messege next year on chritmas

  16. Popping through the potty was crazy! I think its better to go down the chimney and get soot on you instead of potty.

  17. santa being all serios is the s.o.s (secret of santa)really necasarry why can’t we meet you because i know those are fake santa’s at the mall. this is your busy season why oh why in the world would be at the mall?

  18. santa that is sooper funny1 why did you just go down the chimmney and poot the presents quickly before they came in ps lol

  19. You went through the POTTY? Wow! That is really brave of you. I wouldn’t be happy to go through a potty!

  20. Everybody says that you drop the presents down the chimeny then leave but that can’t be right because I always leave a note and you always write back and you always eat the milk and cookies.

  21. Anyone who does not belive in santa did once in there life.They had a bad memeroy or something bad.


  23. since i dont have a chimney you should just turn off our alarm with your magic and walk right through our front door.
    thank you

  24. Santa, I think you should have your Elves make you a “master key.” A deice that fits into any door knob, just like the regular key that was made for it! That way you could walk right through the front door!

  25. hi santa dont sleep on the night when you hand all the prezzies to all the boys and girls

  26. hhaaha that is a pretty funny story ! I always used to think that you couldn’t fit in the door mind you i was only 3 or 4 years old ! Now i understand ! one time I was sleeping and I heard something on the roof . I knew it was christmas eve and I knew that it would be you ! I heard the reindeer tapping their hooves on the roof and I knew that was you ! And you were super duper fast it like the speed of lighting its was like BOOM you were gone !
    when you left i look out the window and i saw red & green lights ! its was americale! I really love Christmas !!!!!

  27. can you come upstairs at my house so i can see you i really love you and when you comwe upstairs go to the right and go into the pink room with a little christmas tree thats my room and wake me up so i can see you

  28. I thought that the potty/toilet story was pretty funny I never thought of you using the potty/toilet. On Christmas Eve you can use whatever you want because I have a chimney and windows and doors and anything you can posibly think of (well maybe) and to me I don’t care which way you use I just want you to use the entrance that you’re most comfortable with because we don’t want aanything bad to happen
    Merry Christmas, Santa
    Isabelle =)

  36. i think that’s the craziest idea I’ve ever heard! I think that is tottaly gross! What if someone was doing their buissness when he came! I think going through the chimney is a much better idea!

  37. How do you get in at houses that don’t have a chimney? Do you use your magic to make a chimney to go down? You come to my house but how do you do it?


  38. The idea that I deliver presents is to go through the door that is what my grandpa said to me

  43. dear santa could you please send me a pi
    cture of rudolfh and all the elfs in the work shop and your family. And tell clumsy that I think coming through tthe potty was a really stuped idear.

And what do you really look like and do you cange the couler of your eyes when you go to kids houses. And when is your birthday love rodie

  50. Please come through the back door we don’t have a chimney. We will leave you Egg nog and cookies plus treats for the reindeer. Hope you have a Merry Christmas. I love you:)

    Please do a special noise.

  55. that is so funny santa why was it clumbsy the elf is there a silly elf if there is that would be evan funier

  96. Did you ever go to President George Washington’s house when he was young? Also what was christmas like in the 1700’s?

  97. Of course santa shouldn`t go down and up the toilet because someone could have not flushed the toilet and yea he would`ve got a fright.

  98. Well, i think you should still go down the chimney because it is faster and usually people put the cookies and milk somewhere by the fireplace! – Julianna

  99. I think that is a pretty silly idea But I would laugh my little heart out if I saw you popping out of the toilet/potty.

  111. Hi santa how you today
    well i been shopping today also and now i am at library with James
    sign james and Jessica.
    p.s thank you
    love santa

  112. santa u can go thru my back door cause we dont have a chimney and just FYI we have a lot of trees love from madison*****

  113. Dear Santa,
    i really think the you should still come down the chimney. But if i had i dea for where you could come it would be through the front door. But some people have alarms like i do. So make sure before you come through the front door you should use your magic to turn it off. and then when you are done delivering the presents under the tree you should use your magic to turn it on again.so that way when you come to peoples houses and go through the front door they won’t wake up and be all scared and all!!!

    Love you always,

  114. santa you should come through are back door everyone has a back door even the kids in africa

  115. i think that you should get some sort of magic spell to put on each prezzie and it will atomaticly go to the house when you are close enough

  116. that was the sillest idea ever how did
    clumsy come up with that idea.silly old elf.


  118. i tink it is cool how you come down the chimney.plees can you make christmas come faster
    love shealyn

  119. That’s really silly! and you know how you said the elf used the restroom for a long time? Well, what if the family did that right before you popped through?! :)

  120. when you go down the chimney and you get stuck do you use your magic and get out or what?

  121. you could just fly to the house the make your self disapeer and make yourself apeere in there house there disapere and apere on the top of the hous agan

  122. dear Santa, instead of a chimney why not use the door? You could park your sleigh on the driveway and walk around to the back door or front door. This will make it easy for you to tip toe in and deliver your presents. We will leave cookies and milk and maybe some cake if you would like. We love you Santa.

  123. dear santa will you be coming to georgia on christmas eve night your friend franklin joe browning

  124. dear santa i think that is a silly thing to do’ because you wouled get dirty.from charles.

  125. hey u should make a chimney if people dont have one or an elevater to go down and go thur the door

  126. Hi Santa that is a very silly idea. That would be scary to me. By the way is that in real life? Lily

  127. Me and Denina were thinking of you just coming through the door and coming to wake the child(ren) up so they can help you. Lots of kids are wanting to see you so why don`t you give it a try.

    Love Carly and Denina

  128. Santa I think going down the chimney is the best way cause if you dont then you have to come in through the door then all the people will know and they will come and start stealing stuff from your house.p.s I love you!!!

  129. thats so silly anyway i whould like you to magic yourself through the kewhole in my front door.

  130. that is a silly idea but elves are supose to be silly after all.i love you santa claus

  131. i would like you to sneak through my bedroom window and then sneak downstairs and fill my stocking downstairs
    thanks frome jake

  132. it must be really hard fo you to go down evry chimney in just one night is it really true if someone is really bold you give them coal

  133. You Are The Best Person EVER! And I Think Coming Down The Chimney Is A Great Idea Although Coming Through The Front Door Better

  138. I think that was silly. I like your idea of going down the chimny. I know some kids don’t have chimnys. How do you get down them? My mom said that you come through the front door or back door.

  139. Hi Santa

    From Kayla Ellis

  140. That was one of the sillyest sotories I have heard yet in this blog. I tink thro the chimnie is the bes idea.

  141. dear santa if you can comein the front door if it is lock what do you do?my mom said you use magic to go in our house is that true or false?i just cant wait until christmas because it is my favorite holiday of all the holidays.i just cant wait until winter either because it is winter break for sckoolz.is it true that you like every bad kid in the world or just the good kids in the world and all over the united states of america.

    jessica rainey

  142. i think every christmas night u should come through a wind instead but umm my blinds click when u hit them or go through the window to get in when your locked out i don’t know mabey i should pull the blinds back then leave the window open ok talk later by

  143. how can you fit in the little skiny chimney and what if you get stuck who helps you out

  144. why don’t you just use magic to walk though the walls?thats what my mom told me you do.

  145. santa will you send a elf to visit my home? so he can take me to the north pole

  156. I would like you to come down the chimney like always. I don’t want you to get dirty and it’s much faster.

  157. Dear Santa,One time I was about…2 or 3 I thought somebody was trying to rob us.But no I think it was probaly somebody getting out of bed or you!

  158. Santa that i so silly what if somebody had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night? lol

  159. That is really a funny story. I can’t believe you actually entered a house through the toilet. Where was it?

  161. well i do think its silly but its better than ruining the childrens christmas

    thanks santa you always tell your secrets

  162. You come down the chimney and pop out the fireplce you go.Everyone should be in the bed by 11:00 at night so you dont get seen if you get stuck in the chimney wich you wont but if you do because you are magical you can just phone mrs Clause tell her what house and adress your at and she will come and help you wont she I love you all lots of love from Rebekah

  172. hi santa i was just wondering why you come down the chiminy because i don;t have a chiminy so how do you get into my house and other peaples house if they dont have a chiminy?

  173. that is very silly you should get a dirty proof suit and loose a bit of weight but still come down the chimey

  174. I would like Santa to go through the loungeroom window because it is closer to the Santa sacks.

    Love Raphy.

  175. to santa
    i think its very funny that you go down the chimney but i guess its the only way that you can get in. by the way how do you get in the chimney wouldnt you get stuck o never mind. you should keep comeing down the chimney for the rest of your life.
    merry chistmas santa

  176. that is funny
    i have another idea.when i go to sleep, i could lock the door then put a key under the door and when you came, you could unlock it!

  177. That was hilarious… and a bit gross, but mostly hilarious! But why did you have the idea of coming through the chimneys RIGHT after the idea of the toilet?
    I believe in you a lot!

  178. santa i want to know if you can make chimmneys by yourself! because i dont have a chimmney so how do you get into my house every year? i would like to have the answer very quickly because 2 more days untill Christmas eve!

  179. U know if people have a chimney u use the MAGIC KEY why don’t u use it on evreyones house or do u touch ur nose and u become downstairs only if theres a chimney?

  180. Wow Santa Claus,
    that was quit the story.But I think that it was a smart idea to stick to chimmneys. I have also got a question, where would you enter if a home did not have a chimmney that you could not enter?

  181. Yayyyy nearly crimbo reallll excited! WELLL santa u can come in my house anyway you like, just dont come thru the front door coz my dog tyson will bark ;D Anyway merry christmas santa! and to everybody else, 2 =]

  182. Hi Santa,

    Please leave our presents upstairs. Your snack will be on the table–we made a special one for you!

  183. Dear Santa,
    Don’t change your tradition if you like it! I think it’s cool that for all these years you have gone down the chimney to deliver presents. If you managed before, then why not keeping doing it?

  184. i personally think presents should be deliverd through the letter box and you can sprinkle some magic glitter so we cant here you you never guess what me and my little sister lexi had a first christmas bump oowchh it hurts but at least we know we will be ok before christmas love you x

  185. Wow thats funny santa! I can’t believe there is only 2 more sleeps to go! I am so excited Merry Christmas!
    From Jess :) :)

  186. that is the craiziest thing that i hav ever heard in my entire life and that is pretty messed up well that is all i got to go cuz i have to go christmas shopping but still that was the weirdest thing ever please dont try that ever!!!!

  187. Dear Santa,

    I read it and you’re right, it is silly. Going down the chimney, you would be dirty, but going through the potty, you would be wet. It’s a good thing you go down the chimney because if you went through the potty,imagine if someone came in to use it. Now that would be funny. 😛 😀

  188. Have a magical key and open otheir door.They thought of a silly idea!I don’t know if this will work,but try!

    Merry Christmas,

  189. oooohhhh!!!! That is a really funny story I was rolling on the floor laghing wellit wasnt the funniest thing ever but really funny merry x-mas

  190. Dear santa ,

    I would hate coming theough the toilet!!! That is discusting …especially if some one one was on the toilet at the time!!!!

  191. An easyer way would be to just have some of the smaller elves pop in through chimeny, window or what have you, and then you send down the smaller presents, then you come in through the toilet again and put the big ones there.

  192. dear santa i think you should climb through the window in my house ill take the stick away from the window seal that stop the burglars from getting in only on christmas eve santa (wink) i am putting all my trust in you from pieter

  193. I like the song about you getting stuck in the chimney its funny. but why do you go down the chimney why dont you climb through a window. haha

  194. What other ways does Santa come down the chimney? I’m going to be with my dad for christmas next year but I don’t have a chimney at that house!!!! If santa comes through the door, the alarm will go off!!!!!!! Same if he came in anywhere else!!!!

  195. why do yo go into the house anyway? why don’t you just use your magic to make the gift’s appear in the house’s?

  196. Santa,

    I am OK with you popping out of our toilet but we will have to make sure it is flushed before your arival.

    See you soon.

  197. Please come down our chimeny and leave the presents under the tree-your cookies are already out waiting for you,. Please, leave an autograph from Rudolph!

  198. i don’t have a chimney.you should come from the front door(if you know the secret code)!

  199. I can’t belive you did that i wouldn’t what if someone had just did their buisness?

  200. I think u should make an invisible suit and invisible presents and sneak in then turn the presents uninvisible and then u win!!!!!!!!!

  201. That is the craziest idea ever. what would happen if someone is using the potty(especially a kid.) Your head would be so dirty. and u couldn’t deliver any gifts.

  202. We don’t have a chimney, so how are you going to get in and deliver my presents?

    I hope I get my presents I would like for christmas.

    love asher

  203. maybe if you try and get all the kids and parents to go to bed at midnight to deliver the presents the best way is to block your left nose to make the chimney appear and with your right nose make the chimney dissapear

  204. Santa I thought that was extremely silly.
    I think if you went down the chimney, what about if people didnt have an open fire wouldnt you get stuck

  205. Dear Santa, Please use the magic key, mummy will leave it outside the front door if you forget yours.

    Love Amelia

  206. You could just use the front or back door, and even if you dont have a key your magical so you can use magic to get in any way you want to.

  207. That is funny. But it would make it funnier was that is if someone was going to the bath room.

  208. this year can you come in my room and wake me up ? and why don’t you go through the window ?

  209. you rock
    you are the best
    i love you
    you give me nice prezzes

    love from best friend taylor!!

  210. Dear Santa,

    I think the elf story is so funny. I think the whole chimney thing is bad and good. I think it is bad because YOU COULD CATCH ON FIRE! It is good because almost everyone has one.



  211. well its a pretty crazy way but if i were you i’d take a giant snowmobile that lloks like a sled

  212. hi santa!
    why on earth would you come out the toilet! i am glad you changed to chimmneys!!!
    love liam

  213. Santa why dont send the presants through the mail box shrink them then post them thenthey can grow back them selfs so you can post them through the chimney

  214. I like you leaving the presents down the chimney and into the living room. I think it is very special!

  215. hi santa yeh that was a silly way to deliver presants i hope i was good this year
    PS. i think i have been good this year

  216. My sis’s friend one morning they where opening there presents and found your hat in the chimney her name is madison kent do you know her???? you probably do

  217. You can come thourgh the front door it’s the easiest thing to do!Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year

  218. i would love it you elvs down ther are doind great i want 32 webkinz i have a poster board and you can see all of them iwant you to make me that please

  219. How did you FIT through the toilet???!!!??? I think you should stick to chimneys from now on!!!

  220. well you could come in thru the back door if they have one of course there will be no key but ur magicl so it doesnt matter right?

  221. dear lovely santa

    I think that everybody should be in bed at midnight so you could leave your presents.

  222. I would love if you come to my house and up my toilet.P.S don’t get sick when you come to my house. from;Skyler koroch to;santa claws candy canes
