We dont do the whole "santa is going to bring presents" thing in my house. We love the story of santa but my kids dont beileve he is who brings the presents.

Well my sister wants to stay with me this year because she had a fight with my other sister but she said that if she stays we HAVE to do the santa thing. I told her no. She is free to stay but I am not going to go out of my way to do the santa thing. Just not something I want to do.

ETA so I dont have to say this over and over anymore. We open some presents and do stockings xmas eve. I told her there were many ways for her to spin it for her kids but she doesnt want to. She wants us to change what we do so she doesnt have to do anything different.



Eta 2. There is no reason for either of us to give up our traditions all we have to do is tell the kids we celebrate different. She can tell her kids that we don't believe in Santa therefore he doesn't bring is presents. It is as simple as that. That is not good enough for my sister. First she invited herself to my house and now she is demanding that I give up my traditions because she doesn't want to explain to her kids that we do things different. My sister creates drama wherever she goes. No one wants her to stay with them not even my parents. She has ruined Christmas for everyone several times. Two years ago she had a freak out when there was bacon in our meal and threw everything away. She then got even more made and threw the Christmas tree away in the trash can.


UPDATE!: My sister decided that she is going to stay home for christmas this year.

I agree with you. If you don't do that for your kids, don't do it just because of hers.

And, maybe she should find her own place to live if she wants to celebrate holidays her own way.

What do you need to do? Tell your kids not to spoil it. She tells her kids that your don't believe in Santa so Santa doesn't bring them presents. Her kids leave put a few cookies and a glass of milk. The end. She takes the cookies away and pours put the milk. The kids open presents and no one corrects them and says really mommy bought that's. Sound pretty easy to me.

I think it's ridiculous for her to even suggest that. It's your house. But you'll get the wachos saying you're ruining the " magic" of Christmas.

I agree. Why make your kids lie for her? It's your house.

Your house....your rules and traditions. If your sister doesn't like it she can suck it up and stay with someone who already does Santa.
