What are your opinions on telling your children that you buy their Christmas presents as opposed to telling them Santa Claus brings them...
A friend of mine was recently explaining to me how he does not celebrate Christmas based on the premise that it is the biggest lie (about Father Christmas) a parent can tell to their children and what messages that then sends them for later in life.
I do celebrate Christmas but not for Christian reasons as such. I see it as a beautiful time of the year for giving, all the smells, family time, spiritual practice, silence, songs etc. I am currently pondering though what to tell my son about presents and why we celebrate it. It’s only the presents part that I need to worry about right now…he’s only 3! but I have mixed feelings… and would like your opinions…
If you do celebrate Christmas
Why do you celebrate it?
What have you told or planning to tell your children?
How has it affected them?
And of course any other nuggets of wisdom..
Thanks gorgeous peeps xx
