The Santa Claus lie
« on: October 26, 2009, 04:16:30 pm »
Were you one whose parents told you to behave in order to receive presents on Christmas from Santa Claus? Do you still belief this person exist? How do you feel about someone making you belief this lie was true? Would or did you tell your kids Santa Claus is real and why?

Yes.
No.
I don't really mind, it was fun while it lasted. I still have an "autographed" photo of Santa lol.
I don't know if I would or not if I had kids.

When I was a kid I wanted to believe, and I didn't even think about how he got into our house and brought us presents or anything.  I guess I was gullible too I believed in the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy too.  I let my kids believe too as long as they want to but if they want to know the truth I'll tell them that too.

I totally believe in allowing kids to believe in santa. Some people are taking the fun out of all the holidays for kids.
They usually start asking question about santa when they go to school.
I let them believe until they are old enough to ask too many questions than i let them know the truth. I have a 4 yr old daughter who loves santa. she just got a post card from him in the mail! I usually mail her a letter "from santa" too closer to xmas. There are places online where you can order letters from santa that are post marked from the north pole! LOl
My 14 yr old does not believe anymore obviously but she knows she has to pretend for her sister.
Why take all the fun out of xmas.

i believe there was a real man they called santa.

Yes!!
Yes my husband & I are Santa!! LOL
It doesnt bother me.
My oldest daughter is seven and she knows there is no santa I didnt tell her the kids at school did, and she was okay with it.
My youngest daughter I bealive thinks there is a santa but santa scares the *bleep* outta her. I have no idea why but she does not like the santa figure at all.

I completely believed what my mom and dad said about Santa Claus which always made it the best time ever.  Who cares if its a lie, its called making magic for the children you love.  Kids grow up very quickly and have enough time then to become cynical and skeptical.

Its called making your children happy and there is nothing better than seeing the stars in those eyes and seeing those priceless smiles.

santa claus and christmas are both a lie to get money out of us who dont have it in the first place. Christmas is a pagan hliday that has nothing to do with Jesus at all. Jeremiah 10 lets you know about christmas trees and they celebrated this pagan day before christ even came in the flesh. it is all a joke.

Where do you draw the line in making children happy?

i think santa is one of the many things that make childhood such a magical time. i personally believed in him until i was seven - a boy at school kept telling me that 'santa' was really just my parents.. so i made my mama swear to tell me the truth, and she did.

if i ever have children, which i hope to, i most definitely intend to let them believe in him..

I dont remember if my parents told me about Santa lie - but I did believe he was real - and I still am because I LOVE Christmas, if no Santa then there is no Christmas, which I will be REALLY REALLY SAD, So I [pretend] believe in Santa just cuz of Xmas.
