    Pierre is still too young to understand but I was wondering what you tell kids about the presents you buy for other people and take to their house or the ones other people give them?

    When we were growing up we always just understood that santa brought the ones from santa, but we gave people gifts as well because its Christmas and you give people gifts to make them happy.

    We grew up in church too so we also learnt all about the sheppards giving gifts...they tried that for a few years but we kind of ignored it and then they just went with the "make people happy" theory hah.

    My SIL tell's my nephew that Santa brings you one special gift and says that she, my brother, family or who ever they're off buy the rest. They like him to appriciate that people think of him and they like him to appriciate how hard they / others work so that they can buy him gifts.

    My mum used to tell me (normally when I caught her wrapping) that santa was far to busy to buy and wrap that she helped and then sent them to santa before xmas for him to deliver.

    In my opinion we all work hard to provide for the family so the credit shouldn't go to an imaginary person ;).. I will be raising Angelynn to know that the presents are all from mom/dad and other family members except for one special present that they will get from "santa". And santa might leave one at grandparents house..

    I was always told that mummy and daddy sends the money to father christmas for the pressies from them. The other were just gifts from those people. I was more interested in how father christmas got in our flat as we didnt have a chimney! xXx

    My mum told us the same.

    I think I will go with my mums story, I don't want Santa being too much of an issue. Of course I want it magical, but I also want her to know the other people buy gifts. :)

    Was never an issue with us as kids. There were gifts from Santa and there were gifts from family members. Never questioned it really....that's just how it was :shrug: Will do the same with Hannah :D
