The Santa Clause Debate
I know one of the big arguments for not having your kids believe in Santa is that when they find out that Santa isn't real (along with the tooth fairy, easter bunny, etc.) they may also question the reality of God. Also, some children, upon finding out that there is no Santa Claus, feel like their parents deceived them and are honestly heartbroken. I personally found out from some kids at school, in the 4th grade. The belief in Santa never caused me to question my faith and I wasn't devastated.
Now that we have Makenzie we need to decide, do we do Santa or not? Dirk and I have talked a little about it but still need to decide what to do. We're both totally on the fence. What do you do with your kids?
Regardless of what we're going to do, I tried out this website and created a personalized message from Santa to Makenzie. I showed it to her and she was intrigued. :) If your kids do believe in Santa Claus you have to try it out!
Here's the link to Makenzie's video
