The Santa Claus Question: What Do I Tell My Children?

Rick, what are your thoughts on Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy regarding what you tell your kids? Do you say these characters are real or not? Is this harmless fun, or is there a problem with deception? The culture continues to creep into our homes and lives. I’m unsure how to walk through our seasonal intruder with younger children, especially when their friends are adamant about Santa being an actual person, and any response that sounds remotely biblical, they react harshly and punitively. It makes it hard for kids to take a stand for their faith. – Supporting Member
