What Should Christian Parents Say About Santa Claus?

As a Christian leader, I get asked this question often during the Christmas season. "How should Christian parents approach the topic of Santa?"

Many parents decide to jump in with both feet on the Santa fun, while others give the Santa topic a complete stiff-arm.

In this article, those two most popular options will be presented with a thought or two on each one, then I'll share another option that we do with our children in our own home. In no way would I say that our option is the perfect way of doing things; after all, every family has to pray, decide, and act upon the option that works best for them. However, there are some things that we must consider in this particular topic because as Christian parents we are our children's pastors, and that is a really, really big deal.
