  • What I wonder is why people don't focus more on their own Christmas and quit worrying about how everyone else celebrates. If you don't want your kids focusing on Santa then don't let them. We don't do the religious stuff in our house. We're not christians so Jesus has nothing to do with our Christmas celebration. Santa comes but we don't let our kids get all crazy wanting stuff either. We don't ask them for lists and they know there is a price cap on gifts at Christmas even from Santa.
    This year they are each getting 2 gifts from us and the family is getting a Wii from Santa. Plus a few other board games and some stocking stuffers. That's it.
