On Christmas and Santa

From my mom's perspective:


We told our kids from the beginning about St. Nicholas being a real person who lived a long time ago who loved Jesus and gave gifts to children and that the Santa Claus we see at the mall was just for fun and to remember him. Then a person at church asked Jessica if Santa Claus was going to come to her house. She said, "no Santa Claus is dead." So we had some explaining to do to that person who thought we were terrible to tell our kids Santa was dead...



I'm not sure what we'll tell our kids.  Santa or no Santa?  I can tell you this made me cry.
