Santa Santa Santa, that is the question of the day...
My kids are 6 and 7, and the only way they know about Santa is because of movies they have watched with him in it. We don't really do the "Santa thing", besides a picture with him, and making cookies with milk on Christmas Eve night for him.
They say stuff like be good so Santa gets you stuff, but they know that the presents are all from Mom / Dad / Grandparents. I never grew up with Santa, so it isn't a deal breaker to teach kids about him when he's not the reason to celebrate Christmas, but if they want to think he delivers gifts then they can, but I don't say yes or no about it because they know we're the ones who give them gifts, as we don't do "Santa gifts".
They of course know the real meaning of Christmas is Jesus' birth and the meaning around the nativity scene. We go to church and also go on Christmas Eve as well. I love Christmas Eve services and singing Christmas songs all December long.
