Same as a PP I've been stewing about this. Just because we do the whole Santa thing, doesn't mean we give into the entire commercialisation of the holiday.
For our family (and this includes our extended families) gives gifts to the kids, yes, but the purpose of the holiday is to spend time with the family and enjoy each others company. In fact, as our families are spread out throughout Aus, we rarely do anything on the 25th of December, choosing instead to get together after all the rush and fuss of the holiday period.
I do hope that you will teach your kids your own values about this holiday, but also teach them to have respect for the way others choose to celebrate.
