  • We treat them all like the stories that they are. The same goes for the Easter Bunny, tooth fairy, Jack Frost, etc.

  • I have no issues with either one. 3 of my kids don't know either of these characters and the one the knows Santa, knows he only exists in spirit and that Frosty is a cartoon. Therefore non existent.

  • My children believe in Santa but know Frosty is a cartoon. I didn't know some kids believed in frosty.

  • My son knows that neither are real. I'm with momof030404 in not knowing some kids think Frosty is real. As far as Santa, I never said anything one way or another but let him figure it out on his own.

  • No... Just like Santa, we make sure they know it's not real. That doesn't mean they don't watch the stuff on TV... Just that they know it's not real.

  • We make Santa and Frosty and Rudolph (just in case that's the next question) a fun, pretend part of Christmas. My boys understand they aren't real but still have fun with the idea of pretend. *Oh and don't worry, we are teaching our boys NOT to burst others bubbles. =)

  • I have told my children from the time they could understand, neither Santa nor Forsty is real. Christman is a time to celebrate God's birth and the winter holidays.

  • cont. And for those who feel Christians stole a pagan celebration. I believe celebration of the new seasons are ok. God being the creator of all is all about seasons Naturally and spiritually. He never intends for things to be the same always. There is a time and a seaon for everything.

  • My kids view Santa, Frosty the Snowman, like Goldie Locks & the 3 bears and all kids story. We do not worship any of them. Have a Merry Christmas Ya'll!

  • My kids know they are no more real than their fave fairy tale characters because that's the truth.

    BTW - Things may change because Man has the tendency to act on his heart's desires, but doesn't the bible say that God never changes?
