Living in Australia but no chimney? Not to worry, Santa Is Still Coming!

The idea of Santa Claus coming down the chimney to put present under the tree on Christmas Eve is one that has intrigued children. In houses where there is no fireplace, parents need to be creative in coming up with an alternative. Here are a few answers parents have provided their children over the years to answer the question of how Santa gets inside a house when there’s no chimney.

Through the Front or Back Door with a magic key

Many parents choose to tell their children that Santa Claus comes in through the front or back door of their house rather than entering through a chimney. This may be a better explanation for those who live in apartment complexes, as the idea of having Santa create a chimney on top of a building simply wouldn’t make sense.

Through holes and pipes

If there are openings such as pipes or holes available, Santa Claus could easily use them to enter a home on Christmas Eve. Some people hold to the fact that Santa Claus has the ability to shrink himself, and that he also uses this technique when going through chimneys as well. As such, he could easily make himself small enough to enter through the tiniest of openings, and then revert back to normal size once his work inside was finished.

passes through the Walls

If Santa can make the sleigh and reindeers fly why couldn’t he use this dust to pass through walls? Children believes in magic, they can easily believe this suggestion.

Through a Window

Santa Claus could enter a house with no chimney through a window. Parents could explain that this is sometimes more convenient if the window is located near the Christmas tree, and this helps Santa save time while making his rounds.

Imagination is the key, there are a variety of ways to explain how Santa Claus enters a house without a chimney. You can preserve the legend of Santa Claus in the hearts and minds of children through creative ways, but even more importantly, can keep the spirit of Santa Claus, which truly does exist, alive and well.
