What is interesting about this thread is that Santa isn't real so I have every right to tell my children and too bad if it ruins your child's Christmas, but how dare anyone insult my religion/beliefs
ETA - not that I think anyone has insulted anyone else's religion here.

But the 'santa lie' is really a type of belief system. I'm a bit surprised by this thread. TBH I'm more surprised by the double standards than the actual 'santa isn't real' thing. The latter being blurted out to my 5 year old would annoy me. But my main debate in this thread is how people want to pick and choose what belief/ideology/life choice is suitable to have tolerance over. Based of course on opinion.
As for the santa lie. Come on mums. Raise your hand if you have at least one child over 5 that you have never ever told a white lie to. People are going on like they are being forced to have their kids refute the existence of dinosaurs or something

I dont know if youre referring to me, but I personally have stated in this thread that I (as a christian) are totally 100% happy for people to say to my kids that they dont believe in god/ they think god isnt real. It happens alreafy all the time. I teach my kids that we all believe different things & that is ok. I tell them that we dont believe santa is real, but other kids do, so we dont spoil their 'game' for them. How is that not mutually respectful? I'm sorry,but I really fail to see the double standard. Please tell me, what do you think I should be telling my child differently in order for it not to be a double standard? I respect their belief in santa. I ask that others respect that I believe in god. ....

In fact I and others have said people insulting our faith is common and like water of a ducks back.
Only to be called a liar. That they believe I am insulted. Funny enough at the time my dd1 who does challenge our faith and say they exact words the poster had said was sitting beside me. She thought it was funny that my own daughters says those things and I still live her so why would I be outraged by a stranger saying them.
What I have said is teaching MY child Our faith is not rude.
BTW I am not anti santa. We just see him differently. We see him as a tradition and a great teaching tool.

I am perplexed though with so much emphasis being placed on the lie aspect. Have you never white lied to your child? Responded no, when your child has accurately guessed their xmas present? Said a medical procedure won't hurt much when you know it will?
