Bit of a shot but I have beliefs that don’t include teaching

Bit of a long shot but I have beliefs that don’t include teaching my children to believe in Father Christmas. Can you think of an alternative I could use instead?

Hello! These are brilliant. Sometimes I feel so bad and the looks other parents give me when I say we don’t do Santa in our house are quite interesting lol I’ve thought about possibly basing it around the 3 kings that brought gifts to baby Jesus when he was born also as we are Christians. I also refuse to allow Santa to take the credit for all my hard work and empty pocket! :)

I know,

And having to explain that a stranger comes to your house to give gifts at night.... always a bit creepy too ... not to mention difficult to explain how the thing works!

Cheers
