Open thread: Santa Claus

Morning, friends.  It’s your turn to talk!

I was going to open this conversation to ANY topic from sleep training to dealing with in-laws, but decided to narrow in on one that may be weighing on some of the newer moms: What are the rules of engagement for Santa Claus?

If the Man in Red comes to your house, does he bring all kinds of gifts or just stocking stuffers? Does he wrap or not wrap? If your kids are in school, are you preserving Santa’s rep against all odds, or do you think the believers are deaf to the naysayers at school? Is the guy at the mall actually Santa or just a helper? Do you and your partner agree on all these issues?

What’s on your mind when it comes to Santa?
