I don't want this to turn into a bashing post, I'm just curious?? Why, all of a sudden, are parents insisting on telling their kids that Santa isn't real?? It seems like it just popped up in the last couple years...

I have seen this a lot on here.  I am not saying that this is everyones reason but I have seen a lot of women say b/c they work too hard to let 'santa' take the credit.  Which I think is nuts.  My kids believe and I will not ruin it for them.

 I think it's because they see it as lying.

I haven't told my kid that santa is or isn't real. I can't imagine telling them he's real if they ask me. I just don't say anything about santa.

What? Really?
I dont plan on it..
My dad was 16 before he realized santa wasnt real lol. His parents would make him go down staires to get something- he would come back up and BAM! All the gifts appeared in a matter of 5 mins. Lol his parents did it for as long as possible.

I wish my parents did that. Lol but my brother told me when i was 5. Kinda a bummer.

1. I don't lie to my children.

2. I'd rather celebrate Christmas as Christ's birth rather than a day where a fat guy plops down your chimney to give ''good'' kids presents.

Quoting emelymac:

Actually, my mother felt that way 30 years ago. I never believed in Santa. For her, she didn't want to lie to me, or disappoint me when the truth came out.
