    I've found most of the more common/main****** Christian denominations do Santa. It's more the fundamentalist denominations that believe Santa takes from the real meaning of Xmas which is the birth of Christ.

    Actually there's nothing biblical at all about Xmas really. Christ's birth was never mentioned as something to commemorate and early Christians didn't celebrate birthdays as they are a pagan tradition.

    Christ's death on the other hand was specifically instructed to be observed and an exact date was given. No such date was even given for his birth.

    More on topic I think the moral of the story is. Respect others beliefs and teach ur children to do the same but u can't control what comes out of your child's mouth nor what they ultimately choose to believe!! Xx

    And highly unlikely his birthday was 25 December or anywhere near that date. Probably more like March or September.

    Yep. No way shepherds would have been sleeping outdoors in December in that part of the world, plus there's other proof it couldn't have been at that time of the year. But yeah Sept / Oct so spring was the most likely time of year 😊

    I say to my 9 year old that Santa only comes to you if you believe in him. So where friends say to her Santa doesn't exist I say well he won't go to them then as they don't believe.

    When my son comes home and tells me his friends say Santa isn't real and they don't believe in him. I turn around and in a way of conversation say "well their God isn't real because I don't believe in him." My son knows everyone has a different belief and that has dunk into him. Just because someone doesn't believe in Santa doesn't mean he isn't real. Just because I don't believe in whatever God his friends follow doesn't mean they aren't real. To me, santa isn't just about some fat jolly guy, it's about the magic of Christmas for my family and what we choose to believe in. Don't mock our beliefs and I won't mock yours.

    What do you say to your kid though when that friend turns up to a play date with a present from Santa?
