‘Never stop believing’: Santa makes practice run to town where teacher said he doesn’t exist


STONEHAM, Mass. (WFXT)– Santa made a special Christmas Eve practice run to a Massachusetts town where a substitute teacher told a classroom full of second graders that he didn’t exist.

Parents in the town of Stoneham told FOX25 that many children had come home earlier in the week after hearing the substitute teacher’s remarks.

After hearing about the teacher’s comments, Santa Claus decided to take matters into his own hands and make a special visit to the town.

“Whenever you see a red ribbon, it means my sleigh passed by on our practice route before Christmas!
Never stop believing in me and the magic of Christmas.
Santa Claus”


Santa left that simple but magical message along with red ribbons throughout the town to indicate his Christmas Eve practice route. It also served as a reminder to children throughout the town of his existence.

The principal at the elementary schools has said the substitute teacher will no longer fill in at the school. While it hasn’t been confirmed, there are reports Santa will be bringing the substitute a stocking full of coal.
