Yep, another santa thread. We've never done Santa, it doesn't feel right to me. DD1 is a very literal child, things either exist or they do not, she never pretended and santa was just was a character to her. DD2 is 5 and the exact opposite off course. We presented Santa the exact same way, that he was a fictional person, and she is convinced he is real. She asks me if he is and I ask her what she thinks, she thinks he is. Then she asks the 50 billion questions about the fireplaces, and presents... I don't go along with it because it feels so wrong to me, I just can not force myself to lie and make up some standard line. Last night she started in on the all the questions again, she looked at me with these big beaming eyes and I told her, "you know Santa isn't real, right?". "Of course he is Mommy!". And that is where it was left.
