We decided to let our kids believe Santa is real. They are adults now and they turned out great. My mom thought she didn't want to lie to her kids so I never believed in Santa. I wish I had, it's awesome when kids wait for him on Xmas!

Its the magic of being a child! They will have the rest of their lives to deal with reality...
This was a big debate between my husband and I with our son! He thought it was horrible to one day let our children have the let down of finding out Santa wasn't real, and I dont believe it is a let down. I was finally able to convince him and our son does believe in Santa but at 6 years old I think he is already catching on since Santa is at almost every store we go to in the Christmas season! We have tried to convince him that those are just Santa's helpers though! lol

I'm all for it, because it's fun. I'm pretty sure my pre-teen kids already know, but thankfully they keep lying to me so I can continue to enjoy the fun.
