This has been a huge issue in my family, mostly with my parents and other members against my husband and myself. Ever since I learned that these characters are ficitional, I opted not to teach my children about them as an adult. However, I tell them the real story of Santa and how the legends came about. But my mother especially believes that I am somehow robbing my children of their innocence and chance to believe. She is not a Christian and didn't appreciate it when I told her my kids DID have something to believe in: Jesus Christ. I am really just curious what others think about this.
