So it is finally coming out in our families that my husband and I don't really want to cover some of the holiday icons with our daughter, such as the Easter bunny and Santa. We will still cover the holiday by saying that some people/ cultures celebrate it this way, and she will still get presents at Christmas, just from mommie and daddy and grandparents, not Santa. Some of our family thinks we are taking the holidays away from her, but we really just don't want to lie to her, and have her feel like we did her wrong lieing to her. (Its how my husband felt when he found out as a small child) I know my mom is trying to compromise in some ways. she wants us to let Santa come to her house, but not ours, and we think its a bad idea because then she will think there is something wrong with our house, or us.
So is it really that bad that we want to approach the holidays from the angle that Santa and the Easter Bunny are other peoples cultures? Everyone we have told says we are taking the fun out of it, and not letting her find this out on her own. Also anyone with any other ideas on how to handle this, the ideas would be appreciated!
