Have you ever been in a store or at a holiday party around Christmas time and seen Santa Claus? Maybe you wondered if this "Santa" was the REAL Santa, or perhaps you knew that it was just your Uncle Steve wearing a costume! So why are there so many Santas and why do people like Uncle Steve dress up this way??
Because Santa is such a magical, wonderful part of Christmas, he's a pretty popular guy! Sometimes Santa can't be everywhere at once, so he'll ask other people to help out!
If you see a Santa at the mall and you think or know that he's not the real Santa, you don't have to be scared or worried he's just there on behalf of Santa to spread more of Santa's magic and love! The same goes for a friend or relative who might dress up as Santa during the holidays. It's probably just someone helping Santa or showing admiration for this awesome guy!
