Santa seems to be a really hot button issue these days… I would never have thought in a million years it would come down to serious online mom wars over telling your kids Santa is real and actually letting them know Mommy and Daddy are the ones really behind the presents.
Either way, whatever you do… I have no hard feelings, live and let live right? If you want to tell your kids you bought the presents, more power to you, but in our house, we do the whole Santa thing.
We don’t do the religious Christmas thing, we have taken the Christ out of Christmas, as someone pointed out to me we apparently celebrate Mas. Call it CommericalMas, PresentMas, SantaMas… whatever… that is what we celebrate.
I really started to think about reasons why I have adapted the Santa thing in my house, and actual reasons I find it important to my kids while they are young.
I am sure everyone else has their reasons for what they do, and how they celebrate the holiday, and I would love for others to share what they do in the comment section below!
I love embracing the differences in my readers, and the way other families do things, who knows it may influence someone else who reads to change their way of doing things and adapt a new tradition or way of thinking!
