My boyfriend and I have decided not to tell our son about santa. We decided this because it's lying. We don't want our son to think that he did something wrong or was a bad child because he doesn't get everything he wants for christmas if we can't afford it. I remember when i was told santa wasn't real and i was very disappointed. I was sad because my mom had lied about someone bringing presents for us and i didn't look forward to christmas anymore. Since the excitement of santa was gone. Our son will be a little over two months old this christmas so he won't remember and babies don't start remembering stuff until they are three. I just don't want him to feel disappointed or sad like i did when i found out the truth. I know santa is a big deal to most people. So am i a bad mom?

Why would you be a bad mom? That makes no sense. I guess every Jewish mother is horrible. You should at some point tell your child the story behind St. Nicholas because its so prevalent in out culture, and why some families enjoy the story more than others. You should also tell him its not right to ruin it for all the other families who like to enjoy the fantasy.
