I have never really thought twice about the idea of Santa Clause or whether or not I would bring up our son to believe in Santa. However, lately I have started to question whether or not we should incorporate Santa into our Christmas Traditions and beliefs.
For us, Christmas is all about the celebration of the birth of Baby Jesus and what his birth sybolizes and means for us. Growing up, I always knew what Christmas meant, but it always more about Santa than about the birth of Jesus. I always grew up giving more credit to the fat man that slid down the chimney than I did to anyone else. It was all about the presents. [Not that there is anything wrong with giving gifts.] I am just starting to wonder if maybe the hubby and I shouldn’t revamp our Christmas train of thought where our son is concerned.
