Over the last few days, I've heard friends and strangers talking about Santa Claus and whether they share the tradition with their young children or not. I was raised in a family that celebrated the tradition of Santa Claus. We also celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ. The story of Santa Claus is just fun. I love seeing the look of pure joy on my son's face when he sits on Santa's lap and shares what he would like to see in his stocking on Christmas morning. Christmastime gives all of us a reason or "excuse" to give - to our children, to our extended families, to friends, to strangers and if Santa Claus is the reason, then so be it.
