I've seen on a few other boards (not this one) that some moms really don't like Santa. They don't want their kids to believe in something that isn't real, they don't like making their kids sit on Santa's lap and almost imply that it's cruel to let your baby cry just for a picture. I think it's a fun tradition. I grew up with Santa, believing it in and still love the magic of Christmas so I want DD to have that same excitement. When I found out Santa wasn't real, I didn't feel lied to or betrayed, and I don't know anyone who has ever said that. Am I the only one who's sensing this? What are your thoughts on Santa?
