    Wait a minute! What do youi mean that Santa isn’t real????? My sweet 30 something daughter still gets her Santa notes and gifts (tradition) but the spirit of Santa is still alive and well in both of us. She actually figured out the “truth” on her own and didn’t tell me
    We love the giving and getting (of course) of gifts. The surprsies we find, the love that is behind the surprises, the family time, the food, all the wonderful things that go along with “Santa Claus is coming to town”.
    We remember the real reason for Christmas and the gifts that were taken to a wee boy and how that wee boy grew up to save us
    Yes Santa is alive and well and at our house and I hope we never lose the magic of Christmas.

    We decided when Eli was a baby to not make a big deal about Santa. “Santa” only fills our stockings and we make sure that Eli knows about where the idea of Santa came from (St. Nicholas) and that we get to pretend to be Santa for each other. We still do all the fun stuff like taking pictures with Santa and watching Santa movies and making reindeer food, but Eli knows that there is not some man in a red suit who sneaks into our house and leaves him presents. Eli knows that Santa is just a guy in a costume and that Mommy and Daddy are the ones who give you presents. Of course, we walk the fine line of making sure that Eli doesn’t ruin it for other kids because for some kids that is all the hope they have because they don’t have Jesus yet.

    This year, I read the book “Santa, Are You for Real” by Harold Myra to my son. It tells the story about the true St. Nicholas and how everyone else was keeping his spirit alive after his death. I didn’t read the book before reading it to him, so I didn’t know I was actually telling him how it all works.

    Fortunately he is only 2 years old, so I’m sure he didn’t put all the pieces together yet. We decided to put that book away with all the special Santa wrapping paper, and wait until the time is right.

  4. Easy answer, for us that is, and maybe others. We never answered the question outright. We just said “as long as you believe in Santa and what he is about, he will be real” and our 22 and 24 year olds still get a visit (stocking) from Santa.
