Does your family "believe" in Santa?

Posted by   + Show Post
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?

Lol! I was going to type a reply but I don't have to :). My youngest still believes but I think this is for sure his last year. I'm pretty sure he knows but is hanging on because he still wants to believe. My big kids were just telling me last night that they are glad we held the tradition we did which was Santa fills the stockings and that's it.

Quoting mom2jessnky:

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.

My kid is starting to grow out of believing in Santa. We don't do many of the traditions we used to do when she thought Santa was real.  :(

I love the idea of getting necessities from Mrs Claus, that's so cute!

Quoting meagansmommy07:

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

I don't know if she still truly believes, but we have done Santa with all the kids until they grew up and moved out. Believing doesn't always mean you think he actually exists.

Yes. My kids are 17, 14, 11, 8, and 4.

We do St. Nicolas day, stockings, gifts, cookies, stories. We believe Santa is real. He is a spirit of the holiday.
