I don't know how people might reply to this but just wondered...

Do you consider it lying when you tell your kids santa is real?

Have you had to at some point tell your kids that their image of the modern day santa is a made up character?

I tell my kids, "Santa is a sentiment and symbol of the joy of giving to others. In that respect, Santa is real.

He doesn't understand that yet, but I don't consider it's a lie.

Quoting EireLass:

Make believe is not lying.

It's not a lie it's a story that has been told forever and has changed over the years

We've always viewed it as lying, so we've never done it.

I don't consider it a lie. I guess I just consider the whole idea stupid. We've always told dd the truth.

You know, Santa may be fictional, but a lot of stories we read our children (and movies) are too and we don't always tell them that they are lies. What's wrong with an innocent child believing in something magical? Or when they are playing "make believe" and pour pretend tea into the tea cups and you tell them that it's not really tea, why spoil it for them?
