Children, and often parents, ask ‘what is Santa’ phone number?’
The answer is: 605-313-4000.
This phone number is for that United States of America and is meant for 2021.
2022 may see a new number.
Having said that, there is more in the answer to this question. This answer is not for little kids who cannot distinguish between the right and the wrong.
It is for the parents who want to ensure that their children are growing up with the right moral compass in a world free of lies and deceit.
So, here is a question for parents – ‘don’t you want your children to actually grow up into honest individuals?’
If yes, read carefully!
First thing first. Santa is not real! Break that to your kids. Santa was an invention – a figment of imagination.
What Do You Hear When You Call Santa’s Phone Number?
Now, here is the big thing that you need to understand:
When you call the number, this is what you listen:
“Ho, ho ho, Merry Christmas! This is Santa Claus and you have reached my personal hotline. We have been very busy making all of those toys to deliver on Christmas morning. And I want you to know that your family loves you very much and so do I, so be good and don’t forget to listen to your parents!”
It is a pre-recorded message that you or your child will listen to when you call the number. You will be landing in the voice mail.
Santa is not real, and neither is there any toy manufacturing unit in North Pole.
The number is of South Dakota.
Why are you selling lies to your children? Children are innocent. They learn what is being taught to them through nurture and/or nature.
Your honesty can go a long way.
When you call the Santa’s phone number, the recorded voice ends by saying:
“When you hear the tone, please leave me your Christmas gift wishes and holiday cheer. And remember, kids — I know who’s been naughty or nice. Merry Christmas and I’ll see you soon!”
Focus on the part which states, “I know who’s been naughty or nice.”
How does he know?
Yes! The Elf on the Shelf!
What environment are you creating for you child – an environment of in-house surveillance that resonates with government’s nationwide surveillance?
You are teaching them to fear Santa because the Elf is always watching and will report it to Santa. The “bad” kids won’t get gifts.
That’s a disciplinary tool?
Essentially, you are teaching your kids the art of appeasement. They need to appease the Elf to be in Santa’s good books. This goes a long way.
What happens when your kids start realizing that their entire childhood and their moral compass hovered around an imaginary elf and an imaginary ‘bigger than life’ Santa?
Basically, you are allowing imaginary things control every parameter of play, growth, and learning.
The very recorded words “I know who’s been naughty” and the presence of the ‘Elf” develops an environment of dread and mistrust.
It is a ridiculous act and the Santa’s phone number is just one of the several tools fortifying the toxic environment of surveillance, deceit, and lies.
Think of the lifetime of consequences that may follow, before you hold your child’s hand and walk right in the middle of the toxic environment.
