I have struggled with this the last 3 years…do I introduce Santa as a part of our Christmas traditions or do we not? I want Leena to get the true meaning of Christmas. The colors, the sounds, the feelings, the smells, the tastes. The FAMILY. The giving, the kindness, the goodness, and most of all the greatest present that was given to us, the life. The celebration of a man, born to save us from our sins. Wash away the bad. That is what I want her to know. By not giving Leena the "Santa" aspect of Christmas am I cheating her out of a large portion of the innocence of childhood? She knows who Santa is…but I have never once told her she better be good so Santa brings her a present. That is so, for lack of a better term, ass-backwards from what I want her to learn from this holiday. I am so torn.
