I am worried I'm confusing my kids. I let them watch shows about Santa (just like cartoons..that are clearly fake) And we fill their stockings for them to discover on Christmas morning.
I tried to explain to my children (three and four years) that Santa isn't real, then explain the history of the real St. Nicholas, and explain it is tradition, like a game.
They talk about how Santa isn't real quite often (I think my four year old totally ruined it for some kid at Trader Joe's today!)
I just hope by trying to keep the fun of the tradition I'm not royally confusing them.
