Re: Santa dilema
Neither DH nor I grew up in Santa believing households - as in the presents under the Christmas tree were from Santa. We knew the whole Santa stories just never believed it was real. Santa was just another symbol of Christmas.
We never made a conscious decision to "not do Santa," we just haven't done it. My oldest is now 5yo, and Christmas is still such a wonderful, exciting time. The Christmas decorations, the visitors, the gifts, the charitable things we do, the songs, etc.
