I have run across so many journals of moms not wanting to lie to their kids about Santa, just wanted to point out what your missing.
Myth make the world a more enchanted place.
We all remember when we realized that Santa is not real. But the only thing that changed was our knowledge of the truth but still beleived in the myth. There are times when we need to pretend to beleive in things we know not to be true. We know that the world is a hard place of suffering and hardship and we know too that justice and kindness and love will not prevail against these hard realities. Myths help us get by, it makes the world a more enchanted place.

Myths are lies, and why tell them it's true and set your child up for disappointment when they find out it's NOT? Doesn't sound very loving to me- sounds kind of like emotional abuse.
