Re: santa or not to santa?
We don't do santa here. My kids have been taught the true story of santa from a young age. They know who he was and what he did and they also know he does not live anymore. We prefer to keep the focus of Christmas on Jesus. We still have tons of fun and Christmas is a very special and wonderful time for our family. :-) My older kids say they never felt like they missed out or anything and are actually glad we did not tell them a "lie" (as they put it). I also feel my kids know they can trust me to always be straight with them, and never tell them stories or try to get them to believe that something is real when it is not. :-)
