If so, what are your reasons? I'm just curious. . . NOT trying to start a debate.
DH and I believe that the reason we celebrate Christmas is to honor and rejoice Christ's birth. We also don't want to lie to DD. I did not believe in Santa as a child, and I have many wonderful memories of Christmas where the focus was always on family and Christ. We had presents, time spent with family, baked and made crafts together and even enjoyed the story of Santa, but we were never taught that our presents came from him or were somehow based on our behavior. We were also taught to respect the choices that other families made and to not spoil it for other kids who believed differently than we did. My favorite moment of every Christmas has always been and still is when my Grandpa reads the Christmas story from the Bible just before we all open our gifts at my BIG family Christmas. He always reminds us that the reason we give gifts to one another is to remember the gifts that the wise men brought to Jesus. I feel so grateful for the wonderful memories I have and I hope to help my DD have just as many special memories as I have.
