"There has long been opposition to teaching children to believe in Santa Claus. Some Christians say the Santa tradition detracts from the religious origins and purpose of Christmas. Other critics feel that Santa Claus is an elaborate lie, and that it is unethical for parents to teach their children to believe in his existence. Still others oppose Santa Claus as a symbol of the commercialization of the Christmas holiday, or as an intrusion upon their own national traditions." - Wikipedia Santa Claus
How do you feel about this issue? We are leaning more towards just telling him the truth. We don't really want to tell him a big lie, and we also would like Christmas to be more about our Christian beliefs, than the commercialism of Santa. My only worry is that my son could ruin it for other kids by telling them that there is no Santa.
