At the christmas season we see families preparing for the arrival of Santa and talking about the little baby jesus. However, the truth about this season is very different.
First, Yule is a pagan holiday. The christians appropriated it, and inserted their traditions. You can learn more about Yule here.
The evidence is also not there that jesus was born in December, but more towards the springtime.
On to the more important point - people lying to their children about Santa Claus and getting them to believe in him. While it may seem harmless, it is still lying to your children and deceiving them. It's far better to be truthful with your children in all things.
In being honest with them, it teaches them from a young age that they are valued and that you truly care about them - care enough to treat them with the dignity they deserve.
While our order has no problem with the tradition of gift giving, we do not recommend lying to your children about Santa. Instead, explain that he's not real, and teach them the truth - as with the other fairy tales such as the tooth fairy and the easter bunny. Have enough respect for your children to teach them the truth in all things. The maturity they gain from it will help them throughout their lives.
We look on this time as Yule, the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year. In tradition, this was a time of feast, drink, and even sacrifice. Being the longest night, it is appropriate to find the power in that night, and for the working of rituals appropriate to tradition according to your wishes and desires.
So mote it be.
