There are many threads about this around Christmas each year. I won't lie either, and yes I did get some flak about it from other people. It is a lie, IMO, to tell a child that a man will enter their home via a chimney (etc) and leave them gifts. It is a lie to say that a big bunny will leave them a basket of goodies. Unless I truly believe those things it is a lie. We just don't do it. I answered any questions and explained what I believed honestly.

Well, Isaiah 11:6 says "The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
and a little child will lead them."
I haven't seen predators and prey lying about together down here yet.
I don't know if there will be animals in Heaven, but I don't think the Bible definitively says there won't. We'll see.
I think the Santa, etc, thing is sort of a "gray area"... I think he's a representation of the Christmas Spirit, the spirit of giving and love and joy that we are filled with that time of year. I believe in him!!
but everything has pros and cons
