Santa and the Christmas Spirit

I found a great article about handling the "Santa Question" and balancing the excitement and magic of Santa with the true reason and celebration of the season, the birth of the Savior. This sweet sister created the Christmas Spirit, who delivered a nativity to a member of the family each year. When her oldest child was about the age of asking the "Santa Question," she revealed that she was the Christmas Spirit, and involved her child in anonymous gift-giving.

Click here to read about how she was able to share the excitement and magic of Santa with her children, keeping the magic alive without letting them down about "lying" to them. And at the same time, teaching the true meaning of Christmas.
