Re: Santa - what do you do?

I struggled with this. In the end after consulting friends we go with the Santa thing. I didn't want to be the mom who people came after when my kid let it slip that is was pretend. One friend almost got mad and thought I was going to ruin her winter discipline program--that I thought was taking it overboard :-).

I do however be sure to tell my DDs the story of St. Nick as well as mention on the side things like: sometimes Santa let's mom buy things too for fun, Santa brings gifts to kids who are less fortunate than us, there are lots of santas out there, we can all be santa, etc. Just to lay a little foundation. My worries come from the fact that I still remember how dissapointed I was when I figured it out myself, 20+ years ago.
