Would like to hear other moms input on letting children believe in Santa.
I am debating on how to go about telling my children about Santa. They know santa is a big part of Christmas for alot of people and is also the birthday of Jesus. Basicly I am afraid if I let my children believe in Santa then when they find out he is not real then they might think the same about Jesus since they are both a part of Christmas. My husband has no worries about this but i just don't want them to lose faith in God and think he is not real just because Santa is not real. My daughter is 5 and already believes in Santa but i havent told her any stories about him "flying around delivering presents to little boys and girls and stuff" she just knows he is a "special" person that comes around Christmas time.
