My husband thinks so, and I do not. I grew up in a Catholic household knowing the truth about Christmas, always receiving presents of course but my siblings and I always knew they were from our parents, grandparents, ect. My husband grew up in a household that the Santa Claus fairy tale was used and it still is, he thinks that kids need that. That life gets too serious too fast and Santa Claus should be a normal part of childhood. I don't see the point...what do you think?

We don't do that in our house. We don't do Christmas presents, birthday presents. I don't need the media telling me when it's appropriate to buy my kids presents, they get those when their behavior says so. My hub gave in and let me do Christmas for a couple of years and that was enough for me. It was too stressful and not what we want our children thinking the holidays are about. We have big meals and lots of time sitting around the table talking at the big holidays. On birthdays we eat pizza or something similar and ice cream cake. They know Santa Claus doesn't exist but they have also been told not to tell other children that and the beans haven't been spilled yet, lol.
