yogahhh:  I mean, OP and her husband are Jewish so it’s pretty baffling why this even has come up.

I’m guessing this thread became so long because some people started getting nasty. But moving on from all of that…

My kids will definitely get the “Santa” treatment! I loved Santa when I was a kid, and my parents did an AMAZING job keeping it up! One day I came home from school and Santa was sitting in our living room! I got to sit on his lap and talk to him for as long as I wanted. He said he parked his sled at the nearby local airport 🙂 How cool! And one year, I was sick during Christmas, so Santa left me a letter wishing me well. To this day, I STILL don’t know whose handwriting that was! It was all neat and loopy, and NO ONE in my family has handwriting like that (I still have it in a scrapbook). In the letter, he said he sprinkled magic dust on me while I was sleeping, so that I’d be feeling better soon.

I love my parents for all they did! I want my kids to have the same experience someday.

Kaymar:  Santa is a secular idea, so if a jewish family wants to celebrate the gift giving aspect of  holiday I don’t know that I see any issue in that. 

I am more offended by being called a “so called Christian” because I celebrate a holiday that stemmed from a pagen holiday. That is so deeply offensive I cant even put it into words. Sure, Christmas branched off of a pages holiday, but since we don’t really know the date of Jesus’s birthday, who cares what day we celebrate it?!
