    when we found the gifts, 3 days before Christmas, labeled from Santa, in the No No Closet. (No No as in "No, No, don't go in there! That's for Mommies and Daddies only!")

    I think I was 6 or 7 then.

    disclaimer: I oppose the escalation and any contrary discussion of said escalation is just that.

      Works way better.

      I have no closet doors, took them off because of little fingers. So things get tucked into boxes instead. Boxes labeled "books", or "bathroom fixtures" etc.
      I have teens and little ones. And none of them have ever figured it out...

      So I have had to explain the Santa is an evil socialist thing to my kids in the past.
