I mean, I did when I was a kid. I wasnt harmed mentally or emotionally.
I do however remember having fond memories of being mystified and excited when one was going to happen.
Why do you feel the need for your child to grow up so quickly? Why cant they have a little fun before they know the truth and enter adult reality?

I'm with the religious emphasis, though we do Santa. I don't do the Easter Bunny; big bunnies weird me out!Â Seriously, I've never understood the Easter Bunny; so, that got nixed.Â At first, I felt like I wasn't going to do Santa either.Â But, I always feel like Santa helps me to explain God to them; after all, the Spirit of Christmas is a VERY basic lesson on the love to/of/from God. But, we limit gifts to 3 from Santa. I have told my family who balk at this practice that if 3 gifts were all that Jesus got on His birthday, who are we to try and out-do Him? LOL! But we also say things like: "There's no such things as monsters, just mean people." And, we make sure they know Harry Potter is "make believe" just like Transformers or Batman. Hopefully, they WON'T end up in therapy behind any of this...
