    We never incorporated Santa in our Christmas celebrations. We found other ways to make the Holidays special. As long as they know that all the "magic" and Santa being able to fly through the air with reindeer, the North Pole and all that is just make believe, I don't think it's wrong to let kids have fun and imagination though.

    We did, but as they grew older and more cognisant of the world around them they realised on their own that he isn't real.

    I've never come right out and said Santa is real. I just imply that he is. My kids all believe in him and will until they figure it out on their own. They are 8, 7, 6 and 2.
    I don't consider it lying. It is an elaborate make-believe game. It's fun. And when they figure it out they feel grown up and then get to play the game from the opposite side. I know that's how I felt when I figured it out. I loved being Santa for my younger brother until he figured it out.

    It's very important to me now that I have become a Chrisstian. I think the true story of Nick is great and celebrating Christmas with snowmen and animals and trees is great. But Santa doesn't bring presents they are given from the hearts of loved ones in celebration of our LOrds Birthday.

    I don't teach them about Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, God, Unicorns, Gnomes, Fairies or anything else made-up.

    I still like to believe that Santa is real, maybe I'm just on his naughty list. :(
    But I will tell my children Santa is real and never tell them otherwise. They can decide for themselves when they are older if he is real or not and if they believe in the real magic of Christmas.

    I have always told my kids there is no Santa, & that he is just a cartoon like barney. We have always told them Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, & since we cant give him gifts for his birthday we give gifts to other people as a way of celebrating him & sharing his love for us all.

    Santa is a story just like any other story books, he's not real, he's not evil, he's just make believe!

    Santa is wonderful part of Christmas. I'm a Christian and it never took away from the true meaning in my home or in my heart. It all depends on what you focus on.
