So, DH, SIL and BIL and I were talking the other day and it really got my curiosity going.
In my house, like when I was a child, Santa brings one present, not wrapped, and fills the stockings.
The rest of the presents are from whoever they are from (grandparents, aunts, uncles, each other, yada yada...).
However, in SIL's house, ALL presents they buy are from Santa.
This just baffles me.
So, I was wondering how it works in your home?

 The "big" or special one is from mom and dad, the rest that we buy is Santa. Other gifts are from others.

I voted other-We celebrate Christmas, however all presents are from family. I honestly do not plan to tell my kids about Santa.

Three all from Santa because that is how many the wisemen brought for Jesus.

 7 or so.. And then 10 or so from us. Plus, santa does the stocking. We make sure at least one they asked for is from santa, but the biggest and best come from us :)

I do it my way because 1) That's how I grew up. Santa, as a child, brought us one present, and I like that idea.
One present especially to one special child. And 2) DH doesn't like some fantasy getting all the credit for what HE did, lol

Quoting Seagodess:

None. So far, at least, I'm not sure how we'll do it when the kids are older (my daughter is 2, second not born yet) but I'm not really that keen on the Santa thing.

When I was a kid usually everything was from Santa until we got older and my parents gave up the charade, and then we would get one big family gift from them but they still wrote "From Santa" on everything else. I don't think we did stockings, at least not regularly and IIRC they were just full of candy. All gifts were wrapped.

Most presents come from family plus myself and only a few come from Santa. That is how it was done when I was growing up.
