  1. I think this may be a good reason to focus on the other aspects of Christmas. Children who see their peers receive fantastic gifts from “Santa” when they receive one, or none, could lead them to believe they are seen as less deserving. We didn’t volunteer the truth about Santa to our kids until they asked, but always tried to downplay the presents part of the holiday.
