Not for little eyes: Tony, just wondering your's and Shari's take on the whole Santa Claus concept? I know there is right teachings and wrong thinkings, on the myth or the reality of the historical Saint Nicholas. Can you share what the Brothers Felich have come to belive? (Personally, I am very glad I was allowed to be a child and have great dreams about the Big Guy.)
Woodster,We don't teach the kids that Santa is real. We have explained the tradition/legend and don't diss other people for how they choose to participate in the Santa ruse. As for being allowed to imagine, come to my house and see the boys imagine. Everything is a fantasy to them, they are in constant imagination mode. Not telling them there is an omnisicient fat guy in a suit (who "sees them when their sleeping...") won't hurt their imagination development one bit.
Thanks Tony, Your words of great wisdom bring comfort to my questioning heart.
