A few Christmases ago, I wrote a post for a wonderful blog called Dadbloggers. Unfortunately, it looks like that site is no longer up and running. Anyway, I remember that it was a provocative post to say the least. It generated lots and lots of comments.
The gist of what I said is this: I don't want to be a liar. I'm not going to tell my kids there's a Santa Claus. We'll "pretend" Santa Claus, but they'll know from Day One that these gifts are from Mom and Dad.
How about you? How do YOU justify lying to your kids? ;)
