Topic Idea: Explaining Mall Santas To Your Kids

 In Blog

When your Santa-believing-child asks you if the Santa at the mall is the “real” Santa, what do you say?

The Stir has three ways of handling the question; check them out here.

Setup Ideas:

  • Ask listeners for tips on how to handle this question without tainting the magic of Christmas. (Don’t forget to warn parents with kids near to turn the radio off!)


  • Head to the mall and get audio from kids. Ask them if the mall Santa is the Santa from North Pole. Play a montage of the best answers on the air.


  • “Ask a…Mall Santa.” Find one to come on the air with you to tell stories about their job. Do kids ever question their credentials? What’s the most awkward situation they have ever had?
