Pop superstar Justin Bieber never baked Christmas cookies for Santa Claus or waited up at night for the big man in the red suit to appear because he says his mom taught him from the start that there’s no such thing as Santa Clause.
The 17-year-old teen heartthrob recently revealed that mom Patty simply wouldn’t have any party of the Santa Claus tradition:
“My mom always told me there wasn’t a Santa. She thought if I grew up knowing about Santa then finding out he wasn’t real, that it would be like she was lying to me.”
On the other hand his mom didn’t want to impose her own views of the fake man in a red suit on his friends so we was forbidden from spoiling the illusion for other kids.
Bieber says instead of presents under a tree the family embarked on a unique gift exchange:
“We played a game on Christmas Day where everyone brought a girl gift and a boy gift. You roll the dice and if you get doubles, you get to pick a present and if you don’t, it’s the next person’s turn.”
He goes on to explain:
“Then, the next time you roll doubles you get to choose someone else’s present and switch. One time I really wanted a Game Boy but I ended up with pots and pans, which was disappointing. I think I gave them to my mom.”
While they didn’t buy into the Santa Claus myth in the Bieber home he obviously grew to love the Christmas holiday, recently releasing his first ever Christmas CD Under The Mistletoe.
Beiber will also be returning to Canada in December where he will spend Christmas Eve with his mom and then Christmas lunch with his dad and younger siblings.
It’s funny because Justin Bieber doesn’t believe in Santa Claus and many people wish that Bieber didn’t exist.
Were you taught to believe in Santa Claus as a child?
