Do you do Santa in your home?

We do and we love it. My daughter (5) actually tried to be "good" during the year for Santa! My son is 12 now and he knows Santa isn't real. When he found out he was actually a little happy to know mommy and daddy were doing all the shopping because he could shop with us and pick his own presents haha!

  • We do too, it is so much fun my DD is so excited and she went to the parade and saw santa arrive in town. Then we get to meet Santa so my DD can see him in person. I think it is the best!! We tell our DD that we know Santa though so she won't be worried about him coming in the house at night.

  • maiahlynn I think that's great. I believe doing Santa is great for kids, but since you chose not to do it, I thinks it's really thoughtful that you trained your kids to play along. Thanks

  • We do Santa and my parents did it and their parents did it and so on. No one was harmed by it so no, I'm not harming my kids by telling them Santa's real.
