Kristen Bell Reveals Why She Told Her Six-Year-Old Daughter the Truth About Santa

Kristen Bell is on the cover of Women’s Day magazine’s December/January issue!

Here’s what the Frozen 2 star had to share with the mag…

On why she decided to tell her daughter Lincoln, 6, the truth about Santa: “I pictured her in a more adult situation where she had a sinking feeling in her gut and wanted to ask the question. Was I going to pat her on the head and go ‘Stop thinking about that, I already told you, it’s fine, believe me? Or would I want to produce the kind of person who goes ‘I’m sorry, I really do need more information on this?’”

On Christmas traditions: “Dax introduced the idea of opening gifts on Christmas morning from youngest to oldest, which I really like. I’m able to talk my daughters through who gave them each gift. I try to reiterate that these presents don’t just fall from the sky; they came from a thoughtful individual whom we need to thank. Another habit I want to pass down to them is to not get stressed out about the holidays. It’s tempting to think that everything has to be perfect. But if we decide at 2 p.m. on Christmas Eve to order takeout instead of cook, I will have a smile on my face.”
