Wigs and beards! Santa Claus’s Hairy Little Secret!

Wigs and beards,
My secret is weird!
Here’s the story
of how Santa got sheared!

Can I tell you a secret? It’s a big one! It’s as big as a Christmas tree!

Some kids have been asking about my hair. They ask me why it looks different all the time. One day I have a nice long beard and then I suddenly have a short beard.

One day I have long straight hair under my hat. The next day my hair is all short and curly.

Some kids have even asked me, “Santa, are you wearing a wig?”

Well, I have to tell the truth!

Yes, SOMETIMES I do wear a wig! SOMETIMES I even wear a FAKE beard! Ahhh! I know! I can hardly believe it myself!

But, there is a reason!

Do you remember Clumsy the Elf?

Well, Clumsy LOVES playing with hair. He loves cutting it. He loves styling it. The elves even have a little saying:
Hair on your head?
Whiskers on chin?
Where ever it is,
It’ll make Clumsy grin!

HHHOL!

I think if Clumsy wasn’t an elf, he’d be a hairdresser!  It’s just too bad that, well, I don’t think he’d be a very good hairdresser!  (But please don’t tell him I said that!)

Every chance he gets, he asks. “Looking shaggy today Santa. Can I cut your hair?”. An hour later it will be, “Santa, your beard looks like it needs a trim too!”

What can I say?  So of course I let him cut my hair or trim my beard.

One day he’ll cut half my beard off.  (And by half, I mean only one side!).  The next day he’ll shave my head, but just the hair on top!  It looks like I have a great big bald spot!  (Mrs. Claus hates when he does that!)

The only thing is, I don’t want to hurt his feelings.  He really thinks he’s doing a good job after all!  And he thinks he’s being really fancy & creative too.

So Mrs. Claus had an idea.  “Clumsy the Elf gives you really bad hair cuts and whisker trims.  Why don’t you let me cut the rest off and just wear a wig or fake beard?”

I was shocked!  Santa would never wear a wig or a fake beard!

Then she said, “But no one will recognize you if you have part of a beard on only half your face!”

So, I agreed.

At first I thought everyone would notice and make a big deal about it.  But, so far, everyone’s been really nice!  (Although some kids still pull on my real beard to test it and that hurts! Ouch!)

So now, if you ever see me with a wig or pink hair, please don’t laugh.  But at least you’ll know who gave it to me!  (It’s a really good thing my hair grows like magic)

  7. When I was seven, my little sister cut off half of my hair! She was trying to style it for me, but my hair got tangled and stuck. She got really annoyed an cut the whole thing off. I hadn’t realised until my mam walked into the room, stopped and stared at my head…
    There were big chunks of hair missing from my head, so I shaved the whole thing off. When I went back to school people stole my hat so they could see my hair. Then I moved schools, and the other kids used to ask me if I was a boy or a girl. This annoyed me.
    I am twelve now and all my hair is back! YAY!

  8. I have cut my hair once when I was 6

    My mum was in the kitchen and I was in the lounge room and I had a big knot in my hair and I didn’t like brushing my hair at the time

    My mum saw the chunk of hair and I got a BIG smack send got grounded

  9. No I haven’t styled my hair but my sister did she put it in a high pony tail and got heaps of hair spray and stick it up in they air I thought it was really cool having a different type of hair style

  62. Why does the elf like to mess with your hair and can you tell me if the elf is really a elf. And can you tell me if the elf is a boy or a girl

  63. When I was 3 or 4 Gracie {my older sister} gave me a hair cut.

    IT WAS REAL BAD!!!! I had to cut my hair the same! But it was a great idea. BUT STILL I DIDN’T LIKE IT!!!

  64. Once I had styled my sisters hair with barrets and color fake hair. then we tried to get it out and it got stuck!her hair was all knotted up and messy!I guess that I wasn’t a very good four year old stylist!

  65. Santa, there is no problem with your beard and hair! I never see the difference! What if you get clumsy a big hairdressing doll for christmas! I know he will like it!

  66. Dear Santa,

    can you tell all of the elves at the north pole thank you for making my presents every year, and that i am very grateful.I also think that you should tell Clumsy the truth because if he finds out before you tell him he will know that you were keeping a secret from him and you shouldn’t let one little secret get in the way of you .Merry Christmas to everyone at the north pole.

    yours sincerely Alexis aged 8

  67. It is okay Santa all of us kids got your back and so does Mrs. Claus. And if clumsy the elf is doing something you don’t like talk to him but in a nice way and say something like “Clumsy you are really sweet and well really good at being clumsy but maybe you could try your hair styles on some one else like maybe one of the other elf’s . like what about scout he is my friend Olivia’s elf on the shelf and he has thick hair light brown hair.” See Santa if you say that to clumsy in your big jolly Santa voice he will understand.

    -Olivia

  68. That’s ok! Don’t worry we won’t tell anyone and trust me if I saw you with a wig on I wouldn’t know the difference!
    Send my love to everyone in the toy workshop!

  74. Dear Santa,

    no I have never cut my own hair. i just wanted to tell everyone what the true meaning of Christmas is. Its not about how many presents you get but everyone should be grateful for what they do get. The true meaning of Christmas is about spending time with the people you love most and giving them the perfect present each Christmas. So when you open your presents on Christmas Day try to think about children who are too poor to even have one present.

    yours sincerely Alexis age 8

    P.S. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
