Re: The power of Santa...
I don't like the Santa threat only because I know I won't follow through, so it's an empty threat. We do Elf on the Shelf but just for fun and because I have fun moving him around--not really as a threat to cause good behavior.
We also plan to tell DS that Christmas is just when we celebrate, and that Jesus was much older when the wisemen visited him, that stables were typically caves, etc. God willing I'd love to take him to Jerusalem some day and I want him to understand what we really know from history.
I love Santa tho. And all holidays for that matter.
Ha, I don't have a problem with silly little stories . I tell DS that he has monsters in his teeth I have to brush away so they don't eat his teeth. Not really a lie--there are monsters, we just call them germs.
