  1. Brilliant! I’ve been wondering how to deal with the notion of Easter bunnies, Santa’s etc…I love the idea of sharing all the folklores etc on the evolution of these characters. How did you explain the Santas at the shops to him when he was 4/5?

    • By 4/5 he already knew Santa was, at this point in history, a fictitious character. He was also a theater and music buff, so we just explained that these santas were essentially actors playing the part of Santa for those children who did believe. A key part to all of this for him, was to explain the current family traditions as well so that he would maintain respect for how others celebrate.
