Question: Tell Kids Truth About Santa?

We all celebrate (or don't if you're a Jehovah's witness) holidays and other traditions differently. For Christmas most people are debating on whether to tell their children the "truth" about Santa or not and what age to do so. I think when I have kids, I'll let them figure it out on their own. Knowing people lie is a trait they'll have to get used to in the real world. 

Where do you stand on the Santa politics?

I waited until my kids came right out and asked me if there was a Santa and I told them the truth.

oh Adam I know is better say the true to the kids but really when I noticed were my parents and not Santa I was sad about days...
In my twins was different in the school the others kids said them and they were really OK.

I love it the magic~ And I love the magic around Santa so for me When it's time for someone to discover it, it will be fine.

Belief in Santa last such a short time, I wouldn't deprive kids of that magic. And you're right, they've got to get used to how the world works some time so it's an instructive disillusionment when some other kid at school tells them the truth.

Yep, let them figure it out on their one. At least it's a good lie.

Let the young ones believe in Santa until they realise that he, or now with this PC business, I should say "he/she" is just fanciful.
Let kids be kids, it is the best part of their lives!

I still haven't told my wife the truth about Santa ;-)

I told my oldest when she was in 4th grade. She was questioning it. Now, my youngest is super gullible and she believed all the way through last year, at 13 years old! My husband thought I was terrible letting her believe so long, but I figure they grow so quick, if she believed then why ruin the magic?

Let kids be kids and let them believe in Santa.
The time will come and they will ask is Santa real ... then is the time for truth.

All the best Jan
