Re: Santa - what do you do?
We do the whole "Santa" thing. My kids love it, but at the same time we do read the real Christmas story and focus on the real reason for the season.
One thing we do is on Christmas morning before any gifts are opened I make blueberry muffins and we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
I had Santa all growing up and I never lost sight of what Christmas is really about.
Also, my kids think Santa is their papa. My dad who looks like Santa (with the white hair and beard, and the round belly). Every year people actually hire him to play Santa. He loves it and does a great job.
Here is a pic of my kids with my dad aka: Santa
