Children are known for having a lot of questions and around Christmas, it can feel endless. Why is Rudolph's nose red? What were the three wise men's names? Why do we put up a Christmas tree every year? Mummy, who ate my advent chocolates? (Oops).
One question that might crop up if you live in a home without a chimney is "But how will Santa deliver our presents?"
A perfectly understandable question considering all the well-known stories about Santa landing his sleigh and reindeers on the roof, ready to hop down the chimney with his big sack of presents.
But don't worry, we have a solution! Say hello to Santa's magic key, a physical key that allows good old Father Christmas to deliver presents to your house, even if you don’t have a chimney.
With this magic key, Saint Nicholas will quietly sneak inside and deposit those important presents before leaving the key somewhere easy for you to find, so you can use it again next year.
Be sure to remind your child that because the Santa key is magic and only works for Santa, there's no need to worry about security risks either.
If you'd like to get involved with this sweet tradition, we've pulled together our very favourite Santa keys you can buy today.
