I don't want DD to every think like
That or wonder why Santa brought her a $800 outdoor set but only got her cousin a doll.
I don't know though, I'd like to make all presents from Santa but I'm over thinking it
Santa will always buy her a present and fill her stocking (we won't lose the magic ) just unsure if I'm going to do them all from him.

i love the idea of santa, its something for my children to get excited about (and it makes them behave close to christmas lol)
I love how excited my eldest (7) gets putting out his and the reindeer's food, even just putting the tree and the outdoor lights up.
This year is especially special for us, its our first Christmas in our first Home (house), so we have gone overboard with the outdoor lights and things. Its fantastic!!
And the look on their faces in the morning when santa has been, she gets so excited just seeing the food has been eaten! I dread when she is old enough to know better

Bc it's a magical time that is so fleeting and we love it. DD is 7 and was told this year by a class mate that santa isn't real and a lie parents tell their kids. She seems to not believe it but I do think this will be the last year
I remember as a kid lying awake, so excited trying to listen for santa on the roof. We would put out cake and milk for santa and a carrot for the reindeer. I found out at 7 santa wasn't real and xmas was never the same after that. Sure there was still pressies and good food, but the magic was gone.
I don't have an issue with those that don't do santa, entirely their choice, but for OUR family, it's a wonderful time

This will almost certainly bring me looks of scorn and snorts of derision, buuut...
I never really stopped believing.
I knew (at some stage) that my parents bought my presents, and that the same was true for most people. But I still thought that it didn't mean there was NO Santa anywhere...
And I kind of like holding on to that magic. Hopefully DD will too

Because its a magical time of year, and I want DS to feel that magic as well- there's just nothing like it. While I promote but don't believe in the physical being of Santa Clause, I very much believe in what he can bring for people.

Is it wrong that every time I see the title of this thread I have a little giggle? And that I want to write something naughty in reply?
