She keeps telling my kids about Santa. I, however, am not sure I want my kids believing in Santa Claus. I kind of feel like it is lying to them and therefore I am betraying the trust they have in me by letting them believe in something that isn't true.
My Grandmother sees it more as a 'rite of passage' that all kids go through and is a life lesson to be learned by all children. According to her, all kids should believe in Santa and likewise grow out of the notion that such things exist.
So, what is your take on this?
Should kids be taught to believe that Santa comes to their house once a year with gifts or coal depending on a naughty or nice list?
And on that note :

Jeff: "As I drew in my bed and was turning around, down the chimney Saint Nicholas came with a bound."
Peanut: He fell down.
Peanut: And didn't you say his face was all red?
Peanut: Why doesn't anyone see this? He is drunk off his ass! This is a horrible, horrible story!
Jeff: "He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot, and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot."
Peanut: Fat; drinkin' and drivin'... in a furry gay outfit... covered in soot; he's smokin', and you let him in the house 'cause he said he had something for your kids! What kind of a father are you, anyway? If it were me, I'd check his I.D., then Taser his fat ass! And just how fat is this guy anyway?
