Do you believe in Father Christmas?

I have been hijacked (actually there was no need to hijack me as I enjoy the job)to be Father Christmas at my grandsons Play School. I did the same last year and as he was then only 18 months old I got away without him recognising me. He did have a sort of suspicious look about him and even came up on my knee without the need for any persuasion to do so.
So by now he is two and a half years old and I have seen more of him than I used to. In fact he is at our house most days of the week at some time or other. So the problem now is will he spot that Father Christmas is in fact his grandfather? Any suggestions serious or light hearted as to how do I avoid being spotted and perhaps spoiling Christmas for him and his older sister.

Just purchased a large hardback book of the poem "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore, going to read it to our Granddaughter on Christmas Eve, lots of beautiful illistrations for her to look at, hopefully making things special for her.
A friend of mine has just finished a three week stint of live video links to schools where he has played a traditional Father Christmas with a holly crown, the children loved it, my Granddaughter had the bonus of having breakfast with him at home when he and Mrs Christmas stayed the night.
So yes, I believe in Father Christmas!
Finally, I have been asked more than a few times in the last few weeks if I am Santa, think my beard and hair need a trim :)

"The Night Before Christmas" I've got that vid somewhere, thanks for the reminder - am off to dig it out ready to watch.
