Do your kids believe in Santa Claus?

If they do, what kinds of traditions do you have about Santa? Stockings, cookies, presents?

If not, did you ever do Santa with your kids?

Yes!  We do stockings, leave cookies, write letters.  He comes on Christmas Eve when they are asleep, fills their stockings and leaves a gift or two.  My daughters are 5 and 2.  I wonder when my 5 year old will realize there really isn't a Santa Claus :-(

Yes, we do. We're doing stockings this year (this is the first year we're doing them), cookies, writing letters and leaving carrots and apple slices for the reindeer. Then after she's asleep on Christmas Eve, Santa comes and fills up her stocking and leaves the presents. My DD is four.

We did Santa  with the boys &  they believed for a while,
We still use his name too but it's more of a joke now but still fun :)

No...I did raise the older ones believing in santa..Until I heard Cassie (then 6 or 7) tell Bree and Katie "Shhh, don't tell mommy, I know santa isn't real. I just pretend cause she thinks he's real". So from that point on I came to the conclusion..It's FINE to tell the kids Santa isn't real and STILL have santa part of our family's tradition... I DO tell our kids/ have told our kids that other kids DO believe in santa and that's fine...We let them have their beliefs....Kids grow up too quickly nowdays and I do like the "magic" of santa...My kids KNOW how we believe what christmas is all about and to me that's what matters..

Nope they both know he's not real.

We never were big on the whole thing. They know to not blow it for a kid that does believe because that's rude. When they were little they would each get a small (under $20) gift from Santa. I don't understand families that have EVERYTHING from Santa or the biggest best gift from him. Uhm HELLO, don't you want the Thank you for that?!

We just have the kids write out what they want, and go from there.

Yes, everything under the tree is from Santa.and since a PP mentioned it, no I don't want the Thanks for thr gifts. Years from now they'll know we bought the enough thanks :) the stockings are from Mrs. Claus because she puts underwear, toothbrush and.toothpaste in.em. we leave cookies for Santa and milk and veggies/fruit for the reindeer
