My parents never did the "santa" thing with us when we were kids. My husband and I have no intentions of doing it with ours. We still watch movies about Santa, read books, etc. But we do not treat him as a real person or anything like that. No gifts are given "from Santa". I think its a great fairy tale or story to tell but not something that should be taught as a truth. I'm not trying to convince anyone - just stating why we do things the way we do.
So anyway... just for fun I found some interesting Santa related websites... and boy are there a lot out there! Some are pro-Santa and others are not. Some are just funny!
