Judah with Santa at one year old
Last night my family visited the downtown Christmas preview. All of the shops are officially open for Christmas. On Saturday we took the kids to Costco for their Christmas party and to meet Santa. Oh, Santa.
When Judah was two months old (his first Christmas) Eric informed me that he did not want to tell our kids that Santa was real. He didn't feel right lying to them. So, after a little bit of disappointment, I agreed. Since, the most important thing about Christmas for us is Jesus. And, I don't want them to think that I lie to them.
Fast forward four years. The boys LOVE Santa. They ask about him all them time and, no matter how hard we try, still believe in him. They'll say, "Will Santa be here on Christmas?" I answer, "No, he's just pretend." "Oh, will his reindeers and his sleigh be here?"
I don't blame them for wanting to believe in Santa. It was so fun for me growing up, but was sad when I finally admitted to myself that he wasn't real.
Right now I'm just treating him like any other make believe character (Mickey Mouse, superman). He's fun, but not real.
What do you do? Do your kids believe in Santa?
