Because others care about you and your life enough to let you know the truth. It's not so much a matter of getting into your life. It truly is a matter of caring. If you don't agree fine. Then continue, But the bible says to preach the fathers word and if we're not then your blood is on our hands in the end..If you don't feel that your doing wrong then it's not taking your glory away

I don't see anything wrong with it or the tooth fairy. My mother did the same things with us. It's just a fantasy. I stopped believing in Santa in the first grade although I can't remember why but I just did. My step daughter believed till she was in the third grade and just got over it. They understand why and I have NEVER seen a child affected by this story.
I believe folks who try to put a damper on other lives are just not happy and will try to make others as miserable as they are.

I missed that post. I grew up believing in Santa, I also grew up knowing that Jesus died for our sins, he is our savior, (Jesus is the reason for the season) My children believe in Santa, the Tooth Fairy and yes the Easter bunny! Shouldn't childhood be a little magical? My daughters who are 18 & 15 were not emotionally damaged for believing in Santa. When they learned that there was no Santa they did not run around calling me a lire. my four year old twin boys, they too believe in Santa, the Tooth Fair and the Easter Bunny this will not harm my children. My kids are in a healthy balance knowing Jesus and all he has done for us, there is no harm in Santa. There is so much bad going on in our world what harm is it to believe in Santa?
