If it were just up to me, we would not even do anything santa-related at all, because 1) I want the focus to be on Jesus rather than on santa, and 2) I hate putting on the act to my kids about it. It really feels like I am lying to them. Well, technically not me because I just avoid talking about the subject all together. To me, its like telling them there is a real batman/spiderman/other superhero with impossible powers and expecting them to believe it. But Chris is all for santa and thinks I'm being a scrooge LOL. I'm okay with celebrating/remembering Saint Nicholas' generosity, but to say that santa flies through the sky and delivers presents to every child in the world on a sleigh with reindeer with the help of elves is just ridiculous to me. I mean, really? The kids have their stockings which magically get filled by "santa" on christmas eve as well as 1 gift from him. I know the kids are skeptical about the santa thing, especially the oldest few, and that is totally fine with me, whereas Chris wants to make sure they believe in him as long as possible. When I was a kid, my mom had a santa present and stocking for me, but I knew all along it was not santa but her that filled them.
