Re: Anyone not do santa?

no santa here either. My 2 year old knows who he is from decorations, books, etc but doesn't have any idea about the gift giving aspect. We will never tell her that Santa is real. To me, that's lying.

When she is old enough to have "believing" friends we will tell her not to argue with them, and that some parents pretend he is real.

Christmas is about Jesus' birth here. We do all the traditional Christmasy things, just not Santa, although we are not anti-Santa either. She has a Santa book and a few Santa ornaments.

It seems kind of silly to me to go to so much fuss to perpetuate the Santa thing to your kids. But to each their own. (I didn't grow up in a Santa household either so maybe thats part of it)
