    If you're not a believer how do you explain to your kids that you're sending their gifts back where they came from?

      LOLOLOL

      So - you have to believe in Jesus to give your children gifts at Christmas time? Do you have to not understand where the traditions of gift giving came from as well?

      I mean - how ignorant do you have to be to join your Christian cult? Does it help to be completely uneducated?  Will I be barred if I know about Sinta Klaas?

    Well if that is your definition of a hypocrite, I am one.
    How would you suggest I get my 6 grandchildren to allow me to forget Xmas?
    It has been a social norm in my society forever to give gifts to little ones at least.
    As for the rest of it, I do not indoctrinate my kids in any belief system.

        Hard to spoil kids! I love them and hug them and talk to them, (when I can get a word in) and yes, any excuse to light those eyes up! smile

              My niece has four and they struggle so we help out. I'm commonly known as Uncle Rick I'm totally selfish I get and give a attention! I tell stories that are not exactly true.smile

                Not exactly true? I need lessons! I have a four year old who asks for proof! smile
                I am totally selfish too. Who would not want the love of a child?
                Hard to get a leg up with kids mentally. You have to get it right in their eyes. Not always easy. smile

    My son's talking law school so I doubt we'll see much action from that direction for awhile. His Mom and I have kept him well threatened.smile

    Extra hugs it is then.

    I agree with your first post earnest.

    XMas is for the little ones, whether you are a believer or not.

    We had "assigned" a different family member to explain the different faiths we all have to my daughter as she grew. My plan was to let her learn from everybody and not push one belief over another. I wanter her to respect every point of view, and also have enough understanding to make her own choices.

    I'm not sure if that would have produced an enlightened atheist or not. lol
    My mom's plan for a Catholic daughter certainly backfired lol

    Take it easy guys
