We had a great time at Dry Gulch USA. It is simply a magical place. It was very cold and the hot chocolate was very welcome! The kids loved the train ride and seeing Santa.
Before we got in to see Santa, Chandler asked me if this was going to be the real Santa or one of his helpers. I said "I dont know. I will have to wait until we see him."
Chandler said that he will be able to spot the Fakes. So in we go and had a few minutes in a private room chatting with Santa about the Laundry List of items to bring this year. Then afterwards, Ben asked Chandler "So could you tell if that was the real one or not? Because I couldnt be sure." Chandler said "Oh yea, I could tell. Yes, he was the Real Santa." Very matter of fact. No hint of uncertainty in his voice.
Ben said "How could you tell?"
Chandler said " Because of his breath. You can always tell the real ones in their breath. Santa always has minty breath. If its not minty, he's a fake."
