Claiming Santa exists is wrong.
Claiming Santa exists encourages hope and imagination to prosper.
A lie is a lie, and lies are wrong. You can tell them about Saint Nicolas, but not that he's still alive on earth.
yea, but it encourages hope and imagination. Do watcha want with your kids. If you give 'em the various childhood lies, they figure it out by themselves as they mature
What happens when a child goes back to school after Christmas and notices that they got more (or less) presents than their friends? Does Santa favor the rich over the poor? It would be better for parents to explain in a kind way that Santa isn't real, while still keeping the Christmas spirit alive.
my partner and I taught about the real history, with all of what happened and still gave gifts
"Santa" is just a imagery of what's make us greedy

Not only does it cause and encourage hope and imagination, it encourages your kids to behave better.
More that it is a Christmas tradition
Santa is not a lie!!!!
It gives them hope.
Santa is real. So if you tell your kid's he's fake then that's the lie. If you think it's right to say Santa isn't real when he is it will discourage your kids and they will no longer like Christmas. Just because science can't prove magic doesn't mean it's not real.
